What we're about

It's all about fundamental digital rights. ☝️

Blockstack is a full-stack decentralized computing protocol that enables a new generation of applications where developers and users can interact fairly and securely, while curing the ills of centralized Internet design. Blockstack builds protocols and developer tools designed to enable a fair and open Internet that returns digital rights to developers and consumers. Led by some of the world's foremost experts on distributed systems, Blockstack allows users to own their own data that they can take with them from app to app in the ecosystem, along with their Blockstack ID that eliminates the need for password-based logins. The end result is privacy, security, and freedom.

Blockstack SF is not only for developers 👨‍💻/ designers 👨‍🎨/ marketers 👨‍💼 / engineers 👩🏽‍🔧 / entrepreneurs 👩‍💼 but also for the "curious" 🦄mind out there.

Join the community that is bringing back fundamental digital rights 🚀. Get ready to meet some great people, listen to some awesome dicussions, and enjoy some beer 🍺.
