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

This is a PROPOSED meetup and is not yet scheduled. I will advise when scheduled and confirmed.
• What to bring
• Important to know
This is strictly a Special Topic meetup presentation/discussion, so bring your pen & paper, laptops, tablets, etc to be an active participant. This is NOT a general monthly meetup with an "open forum" that goes from basic through advanced. This topic requires a pre-existing basic knowledge of how Bitcoin and other blockchain/cryptocurrencies work. NOT an introductory presentation. Thank you.
