CoinScrum {Launchpad} - Dom Zynis & Niki Wiles talk Mastercoin & Counterparty

Will protocol layers make Bitcoin stronger and keep the competition at bay?

Only time will tell if any of the myriad alt chains will make the grade and generate the same network effect that has given Bitcoin its unparalleled strength.

Unwilling to wait and see, others have chosen to focus their attention on building protocol layers directly on top of Bitcoin's solid bedrock in order to help it scale beyond its core, but arguably limited, use as a distributed payment network.

On June 5th at Google Campus we're pleased to welcome Niki Wiles, Community Relations Manager for Counterparty and Dominik Zynis, Head of Business Development at The Mastercoin Foundation.

If you've not come across either Counterparty or Mastercoin, you can read more about them here:

CoinScrum's Chris Ellis will be introducing our two guests and the projects they represent. Following a high level summary from each, Chris will drill down and open up the debate so you can hopefully leave with a clearer view as to what their potential may be. 

We'll also be holding our usual regulatory update giving shout-outs to start-ups so send us a message if you'd like to take part.

    Don't know if I fit the criteria for a 'shout-out' but my site went live recently with my first plated and pure silver coin commiserating Mtgox's demise:

    I spoke to a few people at the last meetup and they got a kick out of it, so I thought I'd post it here too :)

      Hi Chris, I hope one day I can finally meet you. I've seen you many times on You Tube. I've watched Tom Hunts channel and listened to The Bitcoin Spartan, Andreaus.

    So, just to check, the tickets are for the talks themselves? I'm a little confused by the entrance being marked as free on the announcement!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
