What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in the Ethereum project or other blockchain platforms. Whether you are building on top of the Ethereum platform or simply want to discuss the possibilities of a cryptoeconomy come join us!

Our goal is to spur conversation about distributed ledger technologies (activity ledgers, digital value transfers, smart contracts) and applications thereof, within the Memphis business & legal community. Our initial focus will be in the travel, hospitality, property, & energy management (microgrid) applications.
