What If I Told You...What Blockchain Is?

  • Starfish Mission 1535 Mission Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

From the SF Ethereum Meetup Page:

I imagine, right now you're feeling a bit like Alice. Tumbling down the Blockchain rabbit hole? Hm?

Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know, you can't explain. But you feel it. It is this feeling that has brought you to me.

Do you know what I'm talking about? The Blockchain.
Do you want to know...what it is?

Take the red pill...and I show you how deep the blockchain rabbit hole goes. Remember... all I'm offering is the truth...nothing more.

Follow me into the basics of blockchain (for regular, non-technical people) before we "Paint a Dystopian Picture of Blockchain".

6:30pm Networking
7:00pm "What If I Told You...What Blockchain Is?"
I'll open your eyes to...
1) The Ethereum & Bitcoin Platforms
2) The Blockchain vs. A Blockchain
3) Why should I care about Blockchain?

Then at...
7:30pm "Paint a Dystopian Picture of Blockchain": Why are we doing this?
7:45pm Blockchain is dead. What went wrong & why?
8:00pm Formulate a stronger plan based on why blockchain died.
