What we're about

An local umbrella Meetup, "braintrust" and peer group covering any and all topics, discussions and presentations concerning BLOCKCHAIN technology, cryptocurrencies (CC) and decentralized/distributed systems and applications.

TOPICS including, but not limited to:
- Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Monero, Dash, Zcash and all the other major cryptocurrencies, altcoins and tokens.
- Investment, trading, security, wallets, mining, masternodes and more.
- Blockchain technology, development and applications (dapp).
- Decentralized and distributed systems, networking and applications on the blockchain.

The goal is to have one large monthly general meetup with more frequent specialized meetups, optimally on a weekly basis, based on the different interests and goals of the members and attendees of the group. (ie, Week 1: Investment/Trading, Week 2: Blockchain Dev, Week 3: Mining and Nodes, etc.)

GOALS:
- educate public and peers on cryptocurrencies, blockchain and related tech
- understanding wallets, exchanges, use and purchasing of cryptocurrencies
- security, research and due diligence in the "Wild West" of CC and ICO's
- have like-minded people meet and network and create specialty sub-groups based on interest and goals
- get a diverse group of people with different skills, experiences and strengths to work together on common goals/interests
- the history, present and *future* of blockchain and cryptocurrency
- potentially create projects and off-shoot non-profit and/or profitable ventures in the blockchain world and the cryptosphere
- focus the blockchain and cryptographic knowledge in NE OH to the benefit of the community, both public and private, profit and non-profit

Resources and Administration: Meetup, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail/Google Drive, #Slack current. Possible website, Telegram, github, depending on participation, needs and donation levels.

Distributed intelligence, knowledge, skills, presentations, tasks and projects on a peer basis. :)

This topic requires a pre-existing basic knowledge of how Bitcoin and other blockchain/cryptocurrencies work. NOT an introductory presentation. Thank you.
