What is the BlockXChain group for?
BlockXChain is dedicated to the study, application, and development of blockchain technologies. It serves as a platform for feedback, idea generation, collaboration, and overall education. There are two umbrella practices:
Analysis deals primarily with the prediction of bitcoin, ethereum, and altcoin prices. This group uses analytical models to target investment opportunities and make sense out of the volatile cryptocurrency trends.
Development concerns itself with the study and generation of new blockchain technologies. While cryptocurrencies are of interest, they are not the primary focus. Topics here include blockchain programming languages, private blockchains, blockchain protocols, trending projects, and technical analysis.
How can I join Blockxchain?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to the slack channel. Upon approval, you will receive an invite to the slack group that contains information, events, articles, and groups to join.
How can I participate/contribute to this group?
The BlockXChain group measures participation and contribution via a proprietary token. Individuals receive this token for:
- Attending Meetings
- Completing Courses
- Whitepaper Summary/Analysis
- Compiling Resources
- And much more!
How can I learn about blockchain and cryptocurrencies?
We suggest reading the Bitcoin and Ethereum Whitepapers, along with watching at least the first four weeks of Princeton’s Coursera Course. Many other resources are outlined in the BlockXChain Learning Stack.
How often will we meet?
While smaller group calls are encouraged to occur frequently, we host an official BlockXChain conference call every Sunday at 7 p.m. CST.
What technologies will BlockXChain use?
We are always encouraging the use and adoption of new, fitting technologies to benefit the group – so suggestions are welcome. For the time being we require you to use:
- Google Hangouts – our conference calls utilize this service.
- Slack – all official communication will go through our slack channel.
- Waves – the platform for our proprietary token.
