Topic:
Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency, Ethereum — you must have heard about these buzzwords. And stories of people making a quick fortune out of it, and why not  – we’ll look at the market capitalization of “cryptocurrencies” and how they have emerged. Blockchain is the idea which drives them all. The idea was to create a world where any central authority doesn’t control all the money.
Six weeks after the crisis, on Nov 01, 2008, something happened that is actually going to reshape the financial world much more than the crisis itself — this guy (or these guys?) named Satoshi Nakamoto invented a decentralized (crypto)currency known as Bitcoin based off a novel concept known as blockchain.
So, what is the blockchain?
A blockchain is a decentralized, distributed and incorruptible digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers. A bit complicated? Ok, Blockchain in simple terms is explained in this meet up. In this meet up we aim to talk about Introduction to the blockchain as a concept (And not cryptocurrency trading )
