Hey everyone! I'm Justin, and I will be in Helsinki for a few days! I hope to get a meetup going where we talk about Monero, and I want your help to plan it! If you know a good location in Helsinki to meet (preferably with a projector), then please let me know!

Monero is an unlinkable, untraceable currency whose transactions are private by mandate. Since it launched in 2014, it has worked to protect the privacy of transactions and fungibility of coins.

The meeting will cover the history of privacy and fungibility in Bitcoin, discuss several approaches to these problems, and explain how Monero achieves its privacy in detail. Justin will discuss the next steps in development going forward and the limitations compared to other coins. Finally, there will be a Q&A session after the meeting, where he can clear up some final thoughts.
