What we're about

Meetups in LA for everyone interested in decentralized finance (DeFi).

The intention of this meet up is to grow the DeFi community and to help promote the future of decentralized finance. Presenters will range from DeFi startup founders to traditional financiers and everything in between. Members of the Ethereum community and blockchains in general will be in attendance.. The events will consist of listening to speakers discuss the current state of DeFi on Ethereum and provide updates on their Dapps.

There will be no selling or marketing of goods, services, events, or event spaces. This is a purely informational Meetup with likeminded people!
