Details

We will be studying Ethereum as the next project in our Whitepaper Review Series. Like last time, we will walk through the key sections with an eye toward understanding and clearing up misconceptions.

Here are a few questions that we will look to answer together:

1. What are smart contracts and for what applications could be useful?
2. How did Ethereum build off of the work of Bitcoin? In what key ways does it differ?
3. What threats, if any, pose a major threat to the long term viability of Ethereum?

Afterward, we will head over to Pier A Harbor House (22 Battery Pl, New York, NY) for drinks.
