Grin 101 with Matthieu Riou (SF Bitcoin Meetup)

Location visible to members

Note: Remember to RSVP! With the Satoshi-style anonymous release of the MimbleWimble whitepaper, the crypto community got a new way to solve privacy and scalability for blockchain transactions. But while MimbleWimble (MW) is creative and exciting, it can also be weird and confusing. Now that Grin is out, we have a real-world example of MW to explore. This month we are very fortunate to have an expert on all things Grin and MW speaking and answering questions! This months speaker is: Matthieu Riou Matthieu Riou, CTO and Founder of BlockCypher. BlockCypher’s web services enable blockchain applications to be built easily and reliably. Recently BlockCypher launched Grinmint, the first Grin mining pool in the U.S. and Europe.

We'll have free beer, other beverages and food as usual (the food usually goes quickly)!

Proof of Drink at El Rio!

El Rio

Join SF Bitcoin every second Thursday for a casual social event for bitcoiners and cryptocurrency enthusiasts at the El Rio! We'll have an open tab to kick off each evening. Must be 21 -- ID Required. Outside food is allowed but you might be asked to leave an ID with the bar to discourage folks leaving messes. *A note from El Rio: "if you have utensils, pass to folks that we are green so compostables only." They typically have someone working at the grill out back making hamburgers but it's not guaranteed. We're going to try hosting in conjunction with live performances booked at the venue for added entertainment. When you arrive, please find Travis to gain access to the bar tab.
