What we're about

We are a Collaborative Community inspired by the ideas behind Bitcoin, Decentralization, and the Open Source movement.

This is a meetup where forward thinking people can hangout with like-minded individuals. We believe Cryptocurrency will fund the Open Source movement and create economically sustainable systems for communities globally and locally.

This is a shared meetup, if you are interested in hosting an event please message the organizers. For more info on our space visit dctrl.ca (http://www.dctrl.ca)

Learn Technical Analysis & Crypto Investing from Trader of 20 Years

POSTED FOR VANCOUVER CRYPTO NETWORK MEETUP: Ever wonder how some crypto participants are able to turn charts into profit opportunities? What types of tools do they use? How do you know when is a good time to buy or sell? Trading and investing may seem complicated but the exciting thing is that it can be learned and it gets better with practice. Our last crypto trading event was so popular and was so packed full of content, people were asking for more. We're excited to have Robert to present more and eventually cover the part on how to successfully trade regardless of which direction crypto goes. DISCLAIMER: Crypto is highly volatile and trading is very risky. You are responsible for your own actions and only risk what you can afford to lose. Consult your certified financial adviser for professional advice if you do not know what you're doing. SCHEDULE: 6:30PM doors open and registration + networking 7:00PM - opening and intro 7:10PM - Main Presentations 9:00PM - conclusion SPEAKER BIO: Robert Patyk has been watching and investing in stocks, options, commodities, futures options, forex, and real estate for over 23 years. At the age of 17 he placed 1st in the world in a stock trading competition and has continued to learn new strategies to increase returns while limiting exposure to unnecessary risks. He's also made all the mistakes which he had to learn the hard way, which is why we are so lucky that he now wants to help others not just protect their portfolios but to profit off of his knowledge and experience. Robert says that he sees many similarities overlapping with the way cryptos and traditional markets behave, thus giving him an edge with technical analysis rather than trading blindly. Robert shared some predictions including the crash of Bitcoin from 20k back in december (occured a month later) and the bounce after the SEC hearing in Feb. He will also be teaching some of his trading strategies and different trading analysis you can easily learn and start seeing crypto prices the way he does.He is here today to share some of his findings with us, particularly what to stay away from and how. ABOUT VANCOUVER CRYPTO NETWORK: Our community is based around educating the crypto community and looking past the hype and fluff you see on youtube. We are tired of these 'lambo guys' shilling ponzi shit coins and we want to build a community that is focused on the fundamentals and the data behind crypto such that we can make well informed decisions.

Blockchain Gaming: GeoCoin Demo and Q&A

DCTRL Vancouver

It's time once again for the monthly Blockchain Gaming Meetup, a series of events hosted by www.blockchaingaming.com, the first website dedicated to blockchain-based video games. Attention to this sub-industry has soared since the involved of mainstream developers and consoles, and we're going to cover every blockchain game one by one and livestream it to our YouTube channel. Dave Mancini happens to be local to Vancouver. This has enabled him to become a regular participant in the Blockchain Gaming community, attending multiple Meetups and the annual Expo. His app also uses the UBIQ blockchain, a pet project of our good friend Alex Sterk. He'll join the broadcast remotely during the Q&A session. The app is called Geo, with a native ERC-20 token called GeoCoin. Using geolocation technology, GEO tokens can be dropped on a real-world map for players to travel to and collect. It can also track physical tokens, allowing for treasure hunts and other fun IRL games. Visit https://geo.money/ to learn more and be sure to attend the demonstration!

Intro to Crypto-assets
