• Blockstack: Spawning the Decentralized Evolution of the Internet!

    The Globe Hub @ PDK Airport

    This month we will be having an exciting presentation about www.blockstack.org. Blockstack is a startup based out of New York whose goal is nothing less than to build a decentralized internet(!) with focus on data security and identity management. After 4 years of development they have built a decentralized software platform which 100s of independent developers have already utilized to build over 100 applications which run on Blockstack. Also in recent news Blockstack has just become THE FIRST EVER digital token offering to to be approved by the SEC under their Reg A+ for their current $28M raise. It has been reported that they spent over $2M working with the SEC to build from the ground up the regulatory structure for their (and presumably other future) utility token offering(s). The presentation will be led one of Blockstack's Atlanta based development partners, Russ Franklin. A seasoned blockchain professional with work spanning over twenty separate decentralized projects serving in many roles such as Front-End Developer, UI Designer, and Brand Consultant. Russ will be going over some of the key features of Blockstack and also touching on his own Atlanta based startup which has partnered with Blockstack, www.Pgeon.com. In addition to this fantastic program John Rugierri will be bringing his now famous BBQ "crack" ribs. We will also be grilling burgers and hotdogs on the patio and provide a carefully curated selection of FREE beer! Thanks to www.Blockstack.org for helping with the cost of all of these great benefits.

  • Join The Bitcoin Atlanta Trader's Club

    The Globe Hub @ PDK Airport

    We are going to be holding our eight meeting of the Bitcoin Atlanta Trading Club to discuss trading crypto assets. This Meetup will have a practical focus on looking at different types of trading strategies for cryptocurrencies that can also be applied to other assets. Traders need to have a system to be consistently profitable. That system needs to be tailored to the personality of the individual trader. We will look at different approaches to Technical Analysis when trading crypto so that traders both new and old can discover what works for them. Space will be limited for this meetup. We want to include people that are serious about trading regardless of their prior experience. Bitcoin Atlanta has always been a meetup free for its attendees. Being that this is meant to be a smaller subgroup a $5 suggested donation in cash or crypto to Bitcoin Atlanta for this event is appreciated to help fund this and other activities of the meetup. We may grill out on the patio after the event. Please join our telegram for the Trader's Club at: https://t.me/joinchat/KYBtG1WMWKhmi5vUfkBxBQ Join Bitcoin Atlanta's telegram at http://www.t.me/BitcoinAtlanta Check out our website at http://www.bitcoinatlanta.org The Event will be at the GlobeHUB http://www.theglobehub.com The interest in any asset tends to be directly proportional to it's recent performance. At the highs of any market aspiring investors and traders rush in hoping to make fast, easy, and exorbitant returns. The inverse is that at market lows few people seem interested as they do not perceive opportunity or are fearful. This mentality is wrong. Traders must be fiercely independent in their thinking and realize that the greatest rewards are found by seeing things differently. Now is an opportune time for people that are truly serious about the technology and profitably trading crypto to study how the market works. Those that have an interest at this point in the market cycle can build a foundation of appreciation for crypto assets and are less likely to have their confidence shaken in the future. Disclaimer: This Meetup is for mutual educational purposes only. We will not solicit you to buy or sell any asset or instrument. Any decisions made with real capital in any market will be the sole responsibility of the attendees. Trading and investing involves risk of financial loss and it is up to the individual to determine their own tolerances.

  • Will Facebook's Libra Change Everything???

    The Globe Hub @ PDK Airport

    Last week facebook announced it would be launching its own currency called the Libra, but what the heck is it? They are calling it a cryptocurrency but is that really the case? With their 1 billion plus person user base is this a complete gamechanger for the adoption of non-state digital currencies like Bitcoin and Libra? How will Libra affect Bitcoin and the larger cryptocurrency market? Will it supplant Bitcoin as the most prominent digital currency? We are going to go over all of this at our next meetup. Come learn the facts about Libra and also get some opinions on how it may affect the future from a glowing panel of dudes who spend way too much time thinking about this stuff. Just another example of how there's never a dull moment in the cryptosphere. In addition to this fantastic program John will be bringing his now famous BBQ "crack" ribs and we will also be grilling burgers and hotdogs on the patio. There will also be carefully curated selection of FREE beer! Please check out our website www.BitcoinAtlanta.org Thanks as always to The GlobeHUB for providing our event space.
