Take a look at last weeks Ethereum Meetup at the DBC
Ethereum is up and running. And although we’re still in the early stages, there are some seriously innovative projects taking shape in this fast-moving space.
For this meetup, we’ll be focusing on one of these exciting projects. Better yet, it’s the brainchild of one of our meetup members!
Donald McIntyre is the founder of Etherplan. Building on his background in finance and wealth management, he’s conceptualized an intriguing use of Ethereum: smart contracts that hold and manage funds, in a trustless fashion. The idea is powerful: replace the mechanisms of traditional finance with blockchain & smart contract technology that empowers the user and cuts costs for all participants.
Donald and co-founder John Seibel will be walking us through the project, which recently added Nick Szabo to its team. Those of you who are well-versed in the history of crypto will know Nick as a smart contract pioneer and early Bitcoin advocate.
Come equipped with your questions and feedback about Etherplan and its unique challenges and opportunities. And as always, we’ll devote time to hanging out and talking about all things crypto.
8:30-whenever: Hang out
See you there!
