The latest Ethereum London meetup is being welcomed with open arms and it is evident from the fact that the meetup has managed to garner twice as many subscribers.
The meetup has begun today and unlike previous ones, this one is a conference considering that it isn’t being held at a pub.
Some of the presenters this time around include Nick Johnson, from the Ethereum Name Service (ENS), Mathias Grønnebæk, who will be talking about “the architecture of a new financial system of direct access, where banks are merely one of many service providers, and a new class of gatekeepers, exchanges, are competing to become the AWS of financial infrastructure.”
As many as 500 individuals were on the waiting list hoping that someone from the first 250 registrants drop out.
The last speaker is Matthew Hodgson who will talk about “open standard for decentralised communication, where messages, VoIP and other real-time data are stored in Merkle DAGs replicated over all participating servers, giving users full ownership and control over their communications.”
Most, of course, will probably want to go there for the networking, exchanging cards, maybe some ICO pitches. Hopefully no altcoin shilling, but hey, we’re not fussy.
The privileged few who do gain an entrance will then go to the Queen’s Arms. Pay their respects to Elizabeth the Second, maybe sing the hymn. No – – joking, because the only respects they’ll pay will probably be to beer.
That won’t come free, but the pub better accept eth since it’s getting so much business. If they do, we might even go to take a picture. But just for the picture…
Anyway, if you didn’t make it, there is always October, and November, and also December. Maybe they’ll manage a bigger venue next time too because at this rate all three might have been booked already.
