Event description

Description

Decentralization, blockchain, distributed ledgers, and crypto assets are all over the tech news. Meetings and conferences in New York and Hong Kong make us forget easily how decentralized the future of technology is. After all, great innovations can happen anywhere! This event brings together the Frankfurt blockchain community and those interested in the topic. 2-3 startups from Frankfurt will give short presentations about their vision for the future - followed by drinks and a get-together.

The community is set up in collaboration with BLOCKROCKET - European Blockchain Labs. BLOCKROCKET supports and helps accelerate blockchain startups in launching and growing their business model by providing a platform based on top level co-working facilities in Frankfurt, Munich, and Berlin and connecting them to stakeholders relevant for their startups.
