Wellington Blockchain Meetup July 2017 Summary

Posted by

Just under 70 people turned out on a cold winters night at Bizdojo to the Wellington blockchain meetup on Wednesday night. It was the meetup’s biggest turn out to date.


This month was a little different with Mark Pascall giving a detailed talk on “A beginners guide to wallets, buying bitcoin/ether and trading tokens”. Stephen Nicholas chipped in around taxation as well.

It was just under 90 minutes covering all sorts of topics ranging from the different types of cryptocurrency wallets, to exchanges, tokens and ICOs.

There were great questions and also valuable contributions from audience members. In particular, beware of scammers that buy domain names with slightly different spelling to legitimate exchanges and ask for users private keys.

What is the blockchain?

Blockchain is the first successfully tested distributed ledger technology. The technology is a catalyst for the Age of Decentralisation, paving the way for business models that have not been possible before. It is providing us with new opportunities for human achievement.
