Join us on Monday, May 27 between 17:30 to 20:00 to celebrate the opening of the Decentralized Vancouver Chapter!
Decentralized is organised by the University of Nicosia, a global leader in Blockchain education and research, as well as providers of the world's first full academic degree in specialising in Blockchain, the MSc in Digital Currency.
While Blockchain has gained traction as a concept separate from Bitcoin we are one of the few groups who refer to the Bitcoin blockchain when explaining the concept. As the University is a neutral forum, open discussion about scaling, incentive structures, public vs. private blockchains.... is welcome.
