What we're about

Heard of Bitcoin? Bitcoin is built on Blockchain technology.

It's debatable whether we'll all buy overpriced coffees with our cryptocurrency in the near future but what's undeniable is that Blockchain and associated technologies are disrupting traditional centralised IT on many fronts.

Is it the next big thing or the emperor's new clothes? Possibly a bit of both.

Meetup 9: Facebook coin aka Libra: A Brave New World?

MSP Tech Incubator

Hello, I hope you are all having a lovely summer so far and that you are ready for another action packed Blockchain Manchester meetup. This time around we will be focusing on the new kid on the block: Libra or better known as Facebook Coin or ZukerBucks for short! Libra represents a new, exciting and potentially terrifying application of cryptocurrency and digital assets. Will Libra compete or compliment the decentralised forms of cryptocurrency we have all come to love and follow today? We plan to explore Libra and to get a grip on what this means for us all. This meetup is kindly sponsored by Bermans (www.bermans.co.uk) ------------------------------------------------------------ Our meetup will cover what Libra means for the blockchain and cryptocurrency space as well as the wider implications and potential impact on the existing financial system.
