Distributed Saturdays is a bi-weekly blockchain-centric and protocol-agnostic learning fest for all knowledge levels, technical and non-technical. Our educational format features 3+ learning tracks at any given time, and recurring sessions such as Peer-to-Peer Learning, White Paper Book Club, Blockchain 101 + A Fresh New Angle, and the newly added Build-a-thon where developers get a chance to try out different tools and platforms or build together. Distributed Saturdays is a Starfish event held in partnership with SF Ethereum.

Telegram supergroup for this event:


Block is Hot is a Monthly Artist Showcase that aims to provide early exposure to those unfamiliar to cryptocurrency and blockchain, as well as generate a new user experience for crypto users to utilize their wallets. Each event will have performers (hip-hop), live art, and vendors that will accept payment in both fiat and cryptocurrency for their goods and services.


SF Ethereum is a mission-driven organization that provides a forum for those interested in the movement towards decentralization, accountability, increased security, and transparency of business and government entities through the use of Ethereum blockchain technology.
