What we're about

A Meetup for people interested in the ideas behind Ethereum, Decentralized Tech and Blockchain Technology. Blockchain technology has the potential to change the very foundation of how we organize society particularly with the concept of DAO's or Decentralized Autonomous Organizations

Feel free to stop by even if you know nothing about computers, we are inclusive and want to teach people about the implications of the technology. However we'll be focussing on how to construct DAO's and other Decentralized systems with the Ethereum protocol.

RSVP HERE: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/the-march-soiree-a-networking-event-for-crypto-blockchain-professionals-tickets-58682712573 Come, grab a drink, and meet other crypto and blockchain professionals. This month we'll be gathering at the Opus Bar, a iconic bar with a diverse wine & cocktail menu located in the heart of Yaletown and just steps away from Yaletown-Roundhouse Station. This casual networking event was designed to bring people together from all aspects of the industry - tech, marketing, legal, and more. Feel free to drop in and stay as long as you'd like, but please register in advance so that we can let our hosts know how many people to expect and staff accordingly. The Crypto & Blockchain Professionals event series is an unofficial initiative led by members of the blockchain community in Vancouver. These events are unbranded and informal in nature, designed with the sole intent of strengthening the crypto and blockchain network across the Greater Vancouver Area.

CoinFest Vancouver 2019

Vancouver

PLEASE NOTE: there will be several CoinFest events in and around downtown Vancouver. Please wait for the full itinerary to be posted on EventChain. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It's about that time of year, again, where cryptocurrency enthusiasts around the world unite in thanks and celebration. It's been a long, hard winter for us all, but now is the time to put our differences and troubles aside and remember the great teachings of Satoshi. For those who aren't in the know, CoinFest is an annual decentralized convention that occurs simultaneously around the world. Run by volunteers as a non-profit and funded by generous sponsors, it has always been free to attend and always will be. It also only holds crypto assets and occurs at venues that accept or support cryptocurrency (such as by accepting it for payments). Vancouver is the birthplace of CoinFest and participates every year. This year, we have a couple different events lined up with very different themes, and we encourage anyone to attend! Highlights will include: - APRIL 1, 7 PM: a final dinner at India Gate, the world's first Indian restaurant to accept Bitcoin (since 2013), who are unfortunately being renovicted - APRIL 6, 10 AM: a blockchain gaming expo, but on by the team behind www.blockchaingaming.com - APRIL 7: 1 PM: a mass blockchain wedding, with a line-up of well-known couples and the @DogePreacher officiating Stay tuned for updates!

Intro to Decentralization

the LED Sidewalk

Since the dawn of civilization we've organized ourselves through top down, centralized institutions. A centralized world is all we've ever known. Now there's a radically new way of organizing that has the potential to create a more egalitarian, efficient, transparent societies that are less prone to the corruption and coercion present in centralized models of organizing. The underlying invention of Bitcoin (Decentralized Consensus) along with the Internet, 3D printers, Autonomous Vehicles and Solar energy makes up the unstoppable Megatrend of Decentralization which has the potential to shift our society into a decentralized collaborative commons. Come on by to learn more! No technical knowledge required.
