Bitcoin and the Blockchain: Democratizing How We Exchange Value
It's human nature to find new ways to decrease uncertainty. Ironically, it's the technology underlying one of the most uncertain and volatile markets that will help us be more certain of our interactions with one another.
We've grown accustomed to putting our trust in institutions like banks and escrow services due to our mutual distrust of one another. The problem with such centralized services is that manipulation can go unseen due to the closed-door nature of most institutions.

Update: There will be a special surprise for all attendees of the meetup. See you there!
