What we're about
A group for developers, entrepreneurs, innovative finance professionals and enthusiasts to learn about Ethereum, smart contracts and cryptocurrencies. Ethereum is a crypto-platform and programming language. It allows you to build and run next-generation distributed applications that don't rely on a central authority of trust, like smart contracts/smart property, decentralized financial exchanges, or identity- and reputation systems. We discuss technical, legal, finance and economic topics that are related to Ethereum. We will also focus on business applications that might be attractive to implement on the Ethereum network. Our initial meetings have been more networking oriented as we build our membership.
Cryptocurrencies 2.0 have the power to change how we conduct global commerce and govern our society on a profound level.
Ethereum is a platform for trustless and decentralized applications.
Potential examples are simple payments, registrar services (http://ens.readthedocs.io/en/latest/introduction.html), crowdfunding (http://weifund.io/), implementing other currencies (http://ethereum.gitbooks.io/frontier-guide/content/contract_coin.html), prediction markets (http://augur.net/), fully decentralized exchanges (https://mkr.market/) or even decentralized autonomous organizations (https://blog.ethereum.org/2014/05/06/daos-dacs-das-and-more-an-incomplete-terminology-guide/).
We'd love to have you join us!
