We had a great time at last week’s members-only meeting about Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). Attendees learned what they are and how they’re formed. They also learned about MetaCartel, a DAO helping to produce global projects based on ETH technology.

After a long wait our next HUGE event is coming this Thursday December 16,. If you haven’t yet please register and mark your calendars. You won’t want to miss A Very Special Evening with Chris Giancarlo, CFTC Chairman Emeritus & CryptoDad. You’ll hear Giancarlo’s personal story, detailing his forays into Wall Street and his tenure as the 13th Chairman of the CFTC where he pushed for recognition of the digitization of markets. Learn how he’s using his Twitter fame to promote crypto as the successor to America’s failing financial infrastructure.
