NYC Skywire Mainnet Meetup
October 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
The NYC Blockchain Center welcomes our new member, Skycoin, and their Skywire Mainnet NYC meetup group.
Did you know that your personal data is often turned into a source of profit on the Internet?
As it exists today, the internet is often vulnerable to security breaches and surveillance. So what can you do about it?
Good news for you, Skycoin is building a new internet, available first to New York City residents. Skywire is a decentralized 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, and find out how to join the community working to protect internet freedom.
At this meet-up you will:
- Learn about the rewards of owning Skywire nodes
- Recieve 8 Skycoin if you attend and download the wallet
