Smart Contracts live in a walled garden as they can't fetch external data on their own. Oraclize acts as a data carrier by providing reliable connection between Web APIs and Decentralized Applications living on the Blockchain.
Thomas Bertani is the founder and CEO of Oraclize and he will give us an introduction to Oraclize and explain how it works. A number of projects are already using Oraclize and we are excited to hear from Thomas. He will be joining us by video from London.
