What we're about
This is a group for people who are interested in example topics like "sidechains","ASIC-resistant proof of work algorithms","long chain attacks on Slasher-style Proof of Stake" etc. Even if these topics sound intimidating, you are more than welcome if you are just curious what all those things are :) The group theme could be described as "cryptographic engineering", "blockchain problem solving", or "just generally talking techy about blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies". More concisely, this is a group for investigating and exploring the use of cryptographic primitives and associated technological systems to solve larger, more complex problems in business, game theory, communications, technology, etc. The focus is on the technical structures and their construction as opposed to either programming or social advocacy for the resulting technologies.
