This group is now managed by SIG Blockchain, a blockchain special interest group under the Association for Computing Machinery at UIUC campus.

This is group is for anyone interested in distributed ledger technology (i.e. blockchains, cryptography, smart contracts, decentralized applications (DApps) cryptocurrency/tokens, and relevant related subjects). Everyone is welcome! We will meet once a month and will have an educational component as well as a discussion component at our meetups. Join if you seek to learn about this industry and have a great time!

Organizer Jason Maldonado will be laying out a survey of different applications in the blockchain/cryptocurrency/cryptography space and giving a detailed risk-analysis of the financial risks that are present across those applications as well as explain where the ecosystem is headed in the near-future.

Lunch will be provided. For more information, and to RSVP, visit our Meetup page.
