NYC Skywire Mainnet Meetup
December 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:15 pm EST
The NYC Blockchain Center brings you Skycoin and their Skywire Mainnet NYC meetup group.
In a time when personal data is often turned into profit and vulnerable to breaches, communities around the world are looking for ways to guarantee privacy, security and censorship-free access to the Internet.
Skycoin is working toward this future by building a new internet which will be available first to New York City residents.
This internet, Skywire, is a decentralized mesh network of hardware nodes, owned by independent people like you, who are rewarded in the form of Skycoin Coin Hours for sharing bandwidth on the Skywire network.
Join the Skycoin team to learn about the censorship-free, private internet called Skywire, how their community is working to protect internet freedom and how you can join.
At this meet-up you will:
- Get an in-depth intro to Skywire hardware and blockchain infrastructure
- Learn about the rewards of owning Skywire nodes
- Learn how to get started with an official Skyminer
- Learn how to use Skywire for privacy
- Receive a Skycoin t-shirt and have the option to join as a new member of the Skyfleet
