Blockchain and cryptocurrency industries have sprung out seemingly out of nowhere in 2017. From $20,000 Bitcoins, $1200 Ethereum, to new acronyms like ICOs what does this all mean? And how can start ups take advantage of it? Find out at this event from cofounders of Nanome, Steven McCloskey and Keita Funakawa who just sold over $8M worth of their own Ethereum tokens. Joining them will be author and venture capitalist Greg Horowitt and Airbitz cofounders Paul Puey and Scott Morgan to discuss what it means to participate in the decentralized era of computation.
