It's time once again for the monthly Blockchain Gaming Meetup, a series of events hosted by www.blockchaingaming.com, the first website dedicated to blockchain-based video games. Massive attention (and money) is being poured into this sub-industry following the popular success of CryptoKitties, and we're going to cover every blockchain game one by one and livestream it to our YouTube channel for educational purposes.
For our third Meetup, one of the CryptoKitties creators themselves are coming to pay us a visit! In case you've been living under a rock and haven't heard, they put digital cats on the Ethereum blockchain for you to collect. New cats are bred by pairing old ones together, and the creators are encouraging the development of games which utilize them, such as KittyRace, as well as other tools as part of one massive KittyVerse.
Each cat is registered as a non-fungible token (NFT, colloquially called "nifty") according to the ERC-721 standard. AxiomZen recently ignited a heated debate about the nature of blockchain asset ownership by trademarking the term NIFTY and creating a Nifty License, which defines the rights of owners and creators of NFTs such as CryptoKitties.
Our guest from AxiomZen will explain how CryptoKitties works for the unfamiliar and cover the various projects emerging from the KittyVerse. They would also like honest but polite feedback regarding the Nifty License; open source pirates are welcome and encouraged to participate, but anyone who exceeds a certain decibel or profanity level will be cut off from the free beer from B2Expand... and potentially asked to leave. Whichever is worse.
Vancouver's Bitcoin meetup is a space for people who share an interest in bitcoin or crypto-currencies to come together and share stories, ideas, or opportunities. Whether you are a neophyte or an "early adopter" you are likely to find someone who shares your ideas or is maybe even willing to challenge them.
We are open to any respectful people and ideas and encourage members to be open to new people and ideas. As this is also a financial technology, and many people are interested in its business and commercial applications, there may be people attending our events looking to do business or sell services or products related to bitcoin. You may also be a person looking to to business with others involved with bitcoin.
People are of course free to interact how they like. However we respectfully ask that you pay attention to the nature of the event you are attending as well as the attitudes of other attendees, and that you use discretion as necessary.
When conducting or discussing business with any other person you meet, you do so of your own volition and in no way does the "Vancouver Bitcoin Meetup" officially endorse any persons or associations attempting to conduct business or commercial activity at meetup events organized through this meetup group.
In all interactions with others at events for this meetup, all participants are expected to respect their fellow participants and Canadian laws while doing so.
And don't forget to enjoy yourself while we experience and enjoy this technological revolution!
