The June Wellington Blockchain meetup was held last night at BizDojo with a great turn out of about 55 people. What was interesting was that about 40 of them were first timers which was amazing to see!
Mark (organizer NZ blockchain conference) kicked things off with a summary of the event and noted that slides and videos are slowly being updated on www.theblockchain.nz website so keep checking the site.
Klaus also shared some ICO and smart contract work that he has been doing. It was valuable to hear of actual hands on experience with ICOs.
Next, James, a Wellington Blockchain stalwart who’s been to almost every one since the beginning shared his blockchain reading list with the rest of the group which was very useful.
Finally Sean moderated a short session on trading/how exchanges work discussion which was a precursor to the next meetup which has already been announced for the 11th of July focused on a Beginners guide to wallets, buying bitcoin/ether and trading tokens
The event was live streamed for the first time as a trial.
All in all it was a great meetup with lots of new faces and great input from various members sharing their experiences in buying bitcoins from local and international exchanges, installing wallets and ways to securely store them.
