As I write this article, Bitcoin enthusiasts around the world are celebrating a milestone for the cryptocurrency: the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index hit the $3,550 mark.
And that’s a lot of moolah if, like Philly-based computer scientist Philipp Knirck, you first bought the blockchain-enabled virtual currency at $16.
On Aug. 17, the Philadelphia Ethereum Blockchain Meetup will let local cryptofolks ask Knirck questions on the currency’s latest happenings. It’s of note that, at least by our count, this is Philly’s first meetup to focus strictly on blockchain topics.
P.S. Speaking of meetups: join us and some of Philly’s biggest meetups Monday for Super Meetup 2017 on Monday, Aug. 14.
