Every Wednesday, the Blockchain Centre hosts Talk & Trade, a facilitated group discussion about current affairs in the blockchain and crypto world.
Discussions range from trading and technical analysis to technological advances, development updates and news to the philosophies of cryptocurrencies. Often, special guests present and panel discussions take place in the first 15 minutes, followed by a 45 minute facilitated discussion. Afterwards, feel free to stick around and network with your fellow crypto enthusiasts.
This event is sponsored by Hyperledger so please enjoy networking over a drink and some nibbles.
