Fostering relationships, not simply connections.
High Impact Networking
Passionate People

Connections turn into relationships, ideas into innovations, and collaborations into transformative impact. This isn’t a one-time conference or event. Regular monthly meetings help to support relationship building, really getting to know people, and creating a lasting network effect in our community.

Purposeful Introductions

Maybe you’re looking for developers to help pull off your big idea, or maybe you want to learn what others think about a specific crypto strategy. Whatever it is you’ll have access to the people to talk to. Name tags with icons help indicate interests and expertise. Speed introductions help you meet people quickly.

Unexpected Opportunities

Sometimes you find those unexpected introductions that you didn’t even know you needed. This is especially true in a highly innovative space like Blockchain. The diverse network means you’ll hear a lot of fresh ideas and opportunities to meet new people. Come give a new perspective to someone else. 

Meet every 3rd Thursday

The New York City crypto and blockchain community

Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies are now one of the most talked-about innovations with the promise of disruptive innovations and new ways decentralization can help business, people, and society. To reach this potential we must collaborate to form a more equitable future.

Come as you are, if you are part of the growing blockchain sector or are simply interested or curious, let’s unfold this unlimited potential together.

“Satoshi Nakamoto’s aim in creating the decentralized Bitcoin ledger—the blockchain—was to allow users to control their own money so that no third party, not even the government, would be able to access or monitor it. But people were still opting for the convenience of centralized services like Coinbase and Bitstamp to hold their coins.”
– Nathaniel Popper
Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money
“The ‘blockchain’ technology behind bitcoin could prove to be an ingredient of an entire new world of technology, as big as the internet itself, a wave of innovation that drives the middleman out of much commerce and leaves us much more free to exchange goods and services with people all over the world without going through corporate intermediaries. It could radically decentralise society itself, getting rid of the need for banks, governments, even companies and politicians. Take”
– Matt Ridley
The Evolution of Everything: How New Ideas Emerge
“Once upon a time stock was the only option to become big and today you have 10 different options like NFT, crypto, metaverse, domains and much more and still you think you are unlucky you are not unlucky you are lazy fool”
– Anuj Jasani
Entrepreneur | CEO - JustBrandable
“Imagine if the population were to discover, through real life experience, what it is to conduct their lives with a currency that does not lose its value, but in reality gains in value. As our economy grows and as our manufacturing capabilities increase, prices go down. The only reason that prices are not going down today—except in products where improvements are very rapid (e.g., computers)—is because of government-caused currency inflation.”
– Phil Champagne
The Book Of Satoshi: The Collected Writings of Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto
“Bitcoin is often mistakenly characterized as “anonymous” currency. In fact, it is relatively easy to connect identities to bitcoin addresses and, using big-data analytics, connect addresses to each other to form a comprehensive picture of someone’s bitcoin spending habits.”
– Andreas M. Antonopoulos
Mastering Bitcoin: Unlocking Digital Cryptocurrencies
“There is an argument that blockchain technology can more equitably address issues related to freedom, jurisdiction, censorship, and regulation, perhaps in ways that nation-state models and international diplomacy efforts regarding human rights cannot."
– Melanie Swan
Blockchain: Blueprint for a New Economy
"Online identity and reputation will be decentralized. We will own the data that belongs to us.”
– William Mougayar
Author The Business Blockchain: Promise, Practice, and Application of the Next Internet Technology (2016)
“Even with a network of computers belonging to a company stretched across the world, the data is generally only required to be backed up around 3 to 5 locations. Additionally, billions of dollars are spent in order to protect these databases. In the case of a blockchain database, the data can exist on thousands of computers around the globe at a fraction of the cost. ”
– Chris Lambert
Cryptocurrency: How I Turned $400 into $100,000 by Trading Cryptocurrency for 6 months
“Fortunately, bitcoin also creates the incentives to improve computer security. Whereas previously the risk of computer compromise was vague and indirect, bitcoin makes these risks clear and obvious. Holding bitcoin on a computer serves to focus the user’s mind on the need for improved computer security.”
– Andreas M. Antonopoulos
Mastering Bitcoin: Programming the Open Blockchain
“Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
– Brian Patrick Eha
How Money Got Free: Bitcoin and the Fight for the Future of Finance
“Templates of how we organize and govern such as partnerships, corporations, or nonprofits have not be updated in centuries, we still use many of the ancient rules and vernacular today, patching expanding gaps of trust and accounting all stemming from increasing modernized complexity.”
– Richie Etwaru
