Popularity of blockchains reached its peak early this year, and with that came a flood of people interested in profiteering. At the time this drowned out the real work that was going on to build tomorrows internet, and the applications to run on it.

Now that the crypto$ markets have subsided, we continue to build the tools and applications that can enable a fairer tomorrow.

- Introduction to blockchain: Origins, initial use cases, attributes
- Current and near-term use-cases in the real world
(Bring your questions too, as there will be time for open discussions)
