Demystifying the Hype: Understanding Blockchains and Cryptocurrencies with an Expert Panel

UPDATE: There are over 400 people RSVP'ed for this event, but the venue can only fit 150 people. We will accept 150 attendees on a first-come first-serve basis. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

Blockchain-based cryptocurrencies have had a breakout year: raising over $1.7B through ICOs and pushing past a combined market cap of $150B. Even in Denver, there were 200 people at the latest blockchain meetup. But why all the hype?

With a panel of Colorado blockchain experts, you'll learn about the future of blockchain technology (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.) and how to get involved.

Panelists will include:

  • Erik Voorhees (Founder & CEO -- Shapeshift)
  • Piper Merriam (Ethereum Foundation)
  • Kirk Dameron (ConsenSys)
  • Raine Revere (Lead Architect @ Prism -- Shapeshift)
  • Nathan Schneider (Scholar-in-residence @ CU // Leader of Platform Co-op Movement)
  • Rhys Lindmark (Creating a Humanist Blockchain Future) Moderator!

Many leaders of the existing Colorado blockchain community will also be there to help out and network afterwards. Should be fun!

  2. 11:30a - 12p—Networking
  3. 12p - 1:30pm—Nerd Out and Lunch (at Republic Plaza Denver Food Court)
