This meetup will feature the founders of Ampleforth who will be speaking about 1) the limitations presented by the abnormally high correlations seen in today’s decentralized collateral assets, 2) their solutions and protocols, 3) Their use of ChainLink to minimize the risk of an oracle attack and manipulation.

Ampleforth 

The AMPL is an oraclized-money that automatically expands and contracts in response to a price exchange feed. It is a new type of decentralized collateral asset, and primitive DeFi building block.
