What we're about
This is a group for people interested in the technology behind Bitcoin, the blockchain, and related technologies. If you're a techie and are more interested in learning about these amazing new technologies or you already love the idea of Blockchains but want to learn more about the technical aspects of them, this is the group for you :)
We are NOT anti-Bitcoin - this is not a "the real innovation is the Blockchain and Bitcoin doesn't matter" group. However, the focus of this group is more on the technological aspects of the Blockchain and other decentralized technologies which the rise of Bitcoin has made possible.
This is not a forum for trading of Bitcoins or other digital assets.
This is not a forum to promote your project or meetup group. Sending promotional messages to members is grounds for removal from the group.
Terms of Service
By joining this group, attending any meeting, or using Blockchain Meetup on meetup.com, you agree to the following Terms of Service.
1 You certify that you are 13 years of age or over.
2 Nicknames that we feel are inflammatory, vulgar, promotional, or rude will be removed.
3 All meetings and postings are moderated for foul language and commercialized promotional posts or announcements.
4 Always be respectful of other members, the system, and the organizers.
5 Links to adult content, pages with links to adult content, near adult content (including model and swimsuit sites), or messages describing anything against the law will be removed as soon as possible and aren't welcome at meetups.
6 Email excerpts of ANY type or length are not allowed. There are no exceptions to this rule.
7 No press releases, newsletters, web pages, or copyrighted content may be inserted into posts. Minor fair use excerpts of less than one paragraph (4 sentences) may be used if the content is publicly available on the Internet. All other forms of inserted content from press releases, newsletters, web pages, or any other copyrighted content placed into messages will be removed without exception.
8 This group, meetup and postings areas are not a venue for personal or private vendettas. Keep your personal business as just that - personal. This is not a venue for the resolution of personal disputes with members or companies.
9 Please do not drop promotional links, signature files, nor specifics that would lead people to your site. Signing your name is fine, however commercialized posts or resume signatures will be edited. We tend to err on the side of caution to protect the integrity of the system. Affiliate based URLs are not allowed anywhere on the system.
10 Please do not attend meetings in order to promote your own project or coin unless invited or approved by the organizers to talk about your project (e.g. because you'll be giving a presentation about it). Discussing things in private discussions at the meetups is fine but making a coin giveaway announcement or clearly only being interested in promoting your own project are not acceptable.
11 Please keep your language clean and decent. This include personal inflammatory language as well as obscenities.
12 You agree not to hold the Blockchain Meetup, its organizers, or its members liable for anything stated within the forums/postings or at the meetups.
13 Signing up a user name that is an obvious domain name or product name will be removed. This is out of unfair promotion considerations as well as trademark implications.
14 Since this is interactive, and everyone who participates in this meetup is "in it together", please treat others the way you wish to be treated. One way to guard against misunderstandings is to read over your response before you post it. Flaming: flaming or personal attacks are not allowed or tolerated. Should anyone use inappropriate language, start a personal attack, or engage in hate speech, they will be barred from all further discussions.
15 The forums/postings are not a venue for advertisements in any way. It will be the sole discretion of Blockchain Meetup and its organizers as to what constitutes an advertisement.
16 You are responsible for your own posts and agree not to hold Blockchain Meetup, or its organizers liable for any messages posted.
17 Self promotional URL drops and whisper campaigns are strictly forbidden within the forums/postings and at meetups and will be edited out.
18 Claims of action, flames, and calls to action against any company or person will be removed.
19 Messages posted at this site are the sole opinion and responsibility of the poster.
20 Personal exposure. Anyone posting another members personal details or web site details without permission will be banned.
21 When a message is placed in any forum system, you are granting a soft license to the site to use it.
