What we're about

The Mechanism Design Working Group (t.me/mechanismdesigners) is a weekly meeting in Starfish Network hubs of Berlin and San Francisco for collaborative learning about strategic design, game theory and dynamic systems in blockchain, decentralized networks and beyond.

Our iterative, peer-to-peer co-learning format cycles through 4-6 week units*, structuring qualitative and quantitative exploration answering "what/who, why, how, when/where" about mechanism design topics.

The first iteration of the new Berlin meetup will focus on Legal Design, centering on "Co-designing Cryptolaw".

SF Blockchain Week is where blockchain startups, enterprise companies, academics, developers, and investors from around the world come together to define the future of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. If you want to connect and engage with the ideas and people at the forefront of the Internet of Value, we'll see you at the SF Blockchain Week 2019. Who is Attending? SF Blockchain Week brings the top educators, thought-leaders, developers, investors, enterprise leaders, influencers, and the retail consumers to learn more from each other and challenge the status quo for the direction of the industry. Whether you consider yourself a newbie or an expert, our agenda is designed to address the interests and curiosity for every level of knowledge. The Mission We designed talks and workshops to create friendly debates on critical topics that the industry is facing today. Panelists and speakers are guided to express their honest opinions, even if it's controversial, in order to foster an open conversation about the topics that matter. We hope that by doing so, you will receive the most realistic picture on the current state of the industry in a way you have never experienced before. No more fluff, you will be engaged. Ticket Prices Our mission to support consumers adoption and educate the masses led us to challenge the high costs of conference tickets around the world. Therefore, we decided to price our tickets at cost so we can deliver a meaningful event yet still be inclusive and welcome everyone who desires to attend. In addition, we decided to donate any profits left after the event to multiple non-profits who are donating their time and sweat to the blockchain community in SF. About SF Blockchain Week We are excited to announce SF Blockchain Week 2019 which provides world-class education for both consumers and developers with the goal of pushing the boundaries of blockchain innovation. The focus of this week-long immersive experience is to help the industry reach mainstream adoption through fundamental education, establishing technology standards, and engagement with projects paving the way. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sf-blockchain-week-2019-october-28th-through-november-3rd-tickets-64449323662?discount=youareastar10 Please add "use code "youareastar10" for 10% off all tickets to SFBW to the event description.
