What we're about

Welcome to the largest, most consistent Blockchain (aka Distributed Ledger Technology) meetup in Dallas!

This meetup is Blockchain/DLT technology agnostic. We present and discuss any blockchain technology (Hyperledger, Ethereum, Corda, Hashgraph, Quorum, EOS, NEO, Sovrin, UPort, etc.).

Our meetups have three goals:

• sharing and learning technology

• sharing and learning the business case... or the appropriate uses of blockchain

• networking with other great people of the Dallas area... helping each other

Sometimes presentations will be focused mostly on the business case, sometimes focused mostly on the technology, and sometimes a combination of both. If you arrive early or stay late then you also have the opportunity for networking.

We hope you join us and that you do so on a consistent basis. We encourage you to be bold and present what you are working on and/or what you are thinking about. Don’t be shy because it is still very early days for blockchain and cryptocurrency... we are all beginners!

Thanks go to Thomson Reuters for providing the venue and food!
