Event description

Description

In this experimental event series, Mezcal Collective is hosting a live jam session with a very special theme: The Blockchain and its potential to change the way we live. If you want to come chill with inspiring people and learn about some dope new stuff, this is for you. If you don't like wearing ties, but realize the importance of starting and supporting projects that make a tangible change, this is for you. If you want to have a good time at a beautiful loft in the plateau, come join us.

Come chill, learn, inspire each other, join a project or get people on board your own.

~Some of you might have heard about Bitcoin but may associate nothing more to it than its role in facilitating Silk Road transactions. Well, it’s a lot more exciting than that.

Ethereum, for example, a decentralized platform with its respective digital currency ‘ether’ uses ‘smart contracts’ to facilitate transactions between people without the need for an intermediary such as a bank.

Some are calling it the dawn of the “Web 3.0”- decentralized, private, secure and censorship-free. Some are skeptical, some love it. But consider this:
• Ad-free browsers that protect your privacy
• Data that belongs entirely to you- you can choose to sell it or you can choose to keep it
• Social media free of censorship, political influences, biases and advertisements
• Instant transactions, even for physical assets, without the need for an intermediary. You could literally sell your house in minutes
• Artist rights ownership and distribution entirely controlled and monetized by the artist~

Come join us for an evening of drinking, listening to music, hanging out, meeting interesting people and discovering the potentials of this new technology. A number of brave inspiring entrepeneurs, blockchain experts, as well as forward-thinking VCs will be in attendance.

~Beers, cocktails and snacks will be served~

Musicians: To be announced

Funds raised will go to this charity:

Exciting change is happening. It's time we pay attention to it:
The total market cap of such digital currencies reached more than $100 billion. Ether has surged more than 3000% in value in 2017. An estimated $400 million has been raised by projects on the Ethereum platform, often within mere hours. Small investors can now own equity in a project by buying tokens in these “Initial Coin Offerings”, potentially democratizing venture capital.
