What we're about
This meetup is to discuss the Blockchain, the game-changing technology that underpins cryptocurrency but is so much more.
You don't have to be an expert to join, we welcome anyone with interest and curiosity. If Blockchain is unfamiliar you may be more familiar with Bitcoin, the Blockchain is the technology that made cryptocurrency possible. However, the possibilities go far beyond cryptocurrency or Fintech and enables us to imagine a new world that will be largely decentralized.
What does that mean? Some benefits of decentralisation-based services include:
• No intermediary delays
• Upfront identifications and reputation
• Trust built inside the network
• Resiliency against attacks
• No central point of failure
• Governance by consensus
Cryptotech not Cryptocurrency
We recognise that there are existing Brisbane based meetups focusing on Cryptocurrency (http://www.meetup.com/BitcoinBrisbane/) and technical Ethereum based implementation (http://www.meetup.com/Ethereum-Brisbane/).
This meetup instead is looking more broadly at a technology which promises to form a value exchange network (beyond cryptocurrency).
What are the implications of such a technology? How will they impact the world we live in? How will this technology disrupt our incumbent central authorities?
Let us explore these questions and more together!
note: I'm currently looking to get some awesome speakers for our first meetup. So, if interested in giving a talk please message me.
