About the Meetup

The Worcester Ethereum Enthusiasts Meetup is a regular Blockchain-focused Meetup in the heart of central Massachusetts, which hosts a range of topics from cryptocurrencies, crypto-economics, business use-cases and more. Featured Speaker and Meetup leader James Moreau will present an introductory “crash course” in Blockchain as it is applied in Ethereum. And, he will open the conversation for a discussion more broadly about cryptocurrencies and crypto-economics.
