CTO of CoinMarketCap backs decentralization

Mauvis Ledford began as CTO of CoinMarketCap in 2018, after a decade working with some of the biggest names in the tech industry, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, O’Reilly Media, Skype, and Disney Mobile. He was an early Blockchain evangelist and frequent presents sessions on real-world use cases for distributed ledger technology.

Ledford’s motto is “Build it, make it scale, and make it beautiful,” and he firmly believes that “Facilitating trust is good business” as intermediaries who connect users to trust networks currently generate billions in value, without the need to generate a product of their own.

Unique hands-on data visualization workshop

CoinMarketCap’s workshop, “Creating Portfolio Visualizations Using the CoinMarketCap REST API” will give attendees a rare step-by-step chance to build a basic portfolio webpage. Participants will take stored market data and use Google Charts to track portfolios over time.

Ledford will also educate users on how to improve performance with special features like API bundling. The session is suitable for both programming and API beginners, and while coding will be done using Node.js, the overview will be general enough to be useful for anyone who wants to become more familiar with APIs regardless of language.
