UChicago Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Educational Event

**This event is sold out. 

It seems like every day a new coin is made and another headline focused on cryptocurrency has either dramatically positive or negative predictions for the future of the industry.

What are cryptocurrencies? What is blockchain? Why does any of this matter? And how can you get involved?

On Saturday, March 31st, Midway Ventures in collaboration with Edge Entrepreneurship and Asynchronous Anonymous will be hosting an informative half-day event to go over everything you need to know about this booming industry. With tech talks, panels, and many opportunities to ask questions while networking with professionals from the Chicagoland area, this free event is not one to miss for the tech-savvy, crypto-curious, or anyone in between.
