Basic Attention Token - An Infectious Idea
Blockchain is not just for financial speculation. BAT is a perfect example of applying the blockchain concept to a future where banner ads aren’t the king of all internet monetization. Too good to be true? A fledgling idea with potential? We’ll talk about mostly high-level concepts involved in a new advertising paradigm that respects end users and taps into the now-common notion of deliberate tipping/subscribing via micropayments.

Speaker: Mike Purvis
Lead Developer at Untold Studio
Mike got a CS degree in the tropics. He moved to Portland and now works with close friends in a boutique tech consultancy. He is curious about too many things.

Gather - dApp
We will be trying a new decentralized meetup application! Bring a phone, we'll be testing as a group. View more details: https://protea.io/gather/

We're here to help new & old developers learn to build blockchain using skills they already know. We will take baby steps together, break things & learn as we go! You do *NOT* need to have attended the previous event.
