Do you know Jed McCaleb?

Have you heard about MtGox or Ripple Labs or Stellar?

If you haven’t maybe our event is not for you unless you want to catch up with the last few years in blockchain and crypto-currency history.

To give you a quick insight, Jed started MtGox on July 18 2010 because he thought the bitcoin community would need an exchange for trading bitcoin and fiat currencies. In December 2017, the total value of the crypto-currencies passed 0B and included over 1,300 different currencies.

The press with the rapid growth of Bitcoin and its digital alternatives has covered extensively last year the phenomenon so our take won’t be to repeat what has been said. As we have followed Bitcoin and the Blockchain for many years now, we will look into how the industry has evolved and specialized today as most people are confusing the currency with the technology and its applications.

We have many questions for Jed and thank him for taking the time in his busy schedule working at changing the world as we know it with his new venture Stellar.

Come join us in person or online to learn about how we got where we are and where we are going.

This event is FREE for Business Members.

Live Streaming is FREE for Online Members.
