This is the first meetup of the year!
And, this time we will have the opportunity to listen to Bruno Škvorc, technical educator of Web3 Foundation.
Polkadot is an incredibly complex system - more so if you aren't deeply invested in blockchain altogether. We'll go through the basic concepts and leave room for plenty of questions and answers, but only after we've covered the current problems of blockchains and explained why Polkadot is even necessary.
Come discuss on-chain governance, treasuries, relay chains, and cross-chain messaging and see where it's all going to converge.
Join us in a new meetup to know more about Polkadot, and of course to mingle with the community and share your thoughts while drinking an Estrella Damm :D
