January 3, 2019 marks the 10-year anniversary of Satoshi Nakamoto mining the Bitcoin Genesis Block. An action that set in motion the economic and technological revolution that has not only redefined the ways we transact and interact with money in our daily lives, but will continue to have a massive impact on the technology underpinning our economic and social systems.

At this meetup, we will take time to reflect on the contributions of blockchain pioneers, lessons learned, and how the industry is adapting to the needs of a more sophisticated and security conscious market.

Hedera Hashgraph President, Tom Trowbridge, will be sharing a presentation of how we got here, and how Hedera plans to do its part to help shape the future of the industry. Join us for a lively evening of drinks, networking, progress, and great food; as we say "Hello Future" to the next chapter of decentralized technology.

Hashgraph is the first asynchronouse byzantine fault tolerant (aBFT) consensus algorithm that results in fair ordering, fast finality, and secure propagation. It is the foundation of the next generation of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).
