What we’re about

This group is for enthusiasts looking to explore in the space of blockchain and smart contract. Our Meetup group strives to help: Researchers, Startups, Entrepreneurs and Investors in Fintech and non-financial services
Blockchain or Distributed ledgers are poised to disrupt a wide range of industries from banking and finance to the Internet of Things, among others. The aim of this group is to bring together people interested in discussing cross-industry use cases for distributed ledgers, to exchange knowledge for developing POC / Project and creating opportunities for companies to develop new businesses.
We would also be exploring the possibilities and challenges of ‘smart contracts’. This will be a highly valuable opportunity for you to explore the new frontiers of Blockchain and discover how Blockchain could be used as a platform for the exchange of ‘smart contracts’ that replace standard business documents. By using the Blockchain as a ledger, smart contracts can be tracked and used to verify business relationships and agreement without having to resort to the legal system. One idea is to use the Blockchain to manage car leases and the accompanying registration documents. When a car changes hands, new cryptographic signature could you used to complete the deal and even programme car keys for new owners. The group is also committed to share fresh insights around key Blockchain and smart contract developments. Join, Participate and Learn! 
