We are dedicated to understanding blockchains and peer-to-peer distributed systems, and what that means for the future of computing and transactions. Members discuss whitepapers, and we invite luminaries in the field to give easily accessible talks. We also seek out and evaluate alternative cryptoassets for investing over a long time horizon. Of particular interest recently are cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tezos, EOS etc, as well as Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). We also analyze different investing strategies and quantitative frameworks. Note: Our group does not provide financial advice, nor should any discussions be taken as prescriptive.
