For this special February meetup, we will be joined by some of Hedera’s 2020 MVPs for an AMA (ask me anything) session focused on the upcoming release of the Hedera Consensus Service (HCS).

For those of you who aren’t familiar, the Hedera Consensus Service (previous webinar with details on HCS: offers the ability to create scalable and verifiable time-stamping and ordering of events for any application. It utilizes the native speed, fairness, and security of hashgraph consensus, combined with the trust and governance of the Hedera public network.

Such events might include asset tracking across a supply chain, music stream counts for digital rights management, or a log of digital asset transfers. Hedera Consensus Service can be used standalone or as a decentralized ordering layer for other ledgers, such as Hyperledger Fabric, Ethereum, or Corda.

We are taking questions for this AMA via the DailyStamp, so please go here. To submit your questions be sure to tag AMA as the topic.
