What we're about

(NOTE: This meetup is on hold through the holiday season. Please reach out if you are interested in speaking, co-hosting, or sponsoring future meetups!)

Welcome! This group is intended for hackers, builders, and protocol developers that are interested in understanding the core protocol design of existing blockchains such as Ethereum, and in designing and developing new protocols and blockchain clients. We'll deep dive into the core challenges and design considerations of both protocols and broader client architecture: P2P networking, serialization and wire formats, databases, virtual machines, etc. We focus primarily upon tech but also love to talk about higher-level topics such as game theory, mechanism design, and protocol economics.

Basically, if you want to learn how to contribute to an existing blockchain/DLT protocol, or build your own, you've found the right group!
