Blockchain technology has the potential to redefine not just the financial industry, but also law, healthcare, education, and much more. This meetup group is for those interested in learning about the potential of this technology and its social impact, as well as a platform for individuals and startups to share their ideas with the community.
Thursday, December 5, 2019 – 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The meetup will feature a presentation by Dan Kleiman where the following questions/ideas will be explored. What are blockchains and who is building on them?
