Connecting the blockchain community in Berlin

About BERchain

There is so much going on about blockchain in Berlin, unfortunately this is all broken up in different sub-communities with their own platforms and meetups. We are aiming to connect the community further through an invite-only Slack group (see below) and an extensive list of meetups and events. We keep the quality of the Slack group on a high level by only admitting those who work professionally with blockchain as a developer, technologist or in the business of blockchain, and who have a relationship to Berlin. We filter for noise and spam on the group and constantly monitor to ensure a high level of conversation. We do not tolerate hard sales, as this group should be about knowledge exchange. Also ICO promotion or investment speculation/advise/questions is not welcome on our platform.

Technical Talk

We encourage in-depth technical chats on blockchain and distributed ledger technology, but are also open to those who are not that experienced but with interest in the technology and opportunities. We want to be inclusive to those working with, or geniunly interested in Blockchain.

Blockchain Business

Have questions on how to do token economy, do an ICO or otherwise start up your blockchain company, or perhaps on how to start your in-house corporate distributed ledger project? We aim to have the experts in the group and help each other out.

What not?

While we firmly believe that cryptocurrencies are here to stay and there are amazing investment opportunities at the moment, we do not aim to be a platform to discuss investments. We are mainly focused on the technical, social and business side of blockchain as a technology.

    You can join by filling out the application form. We have limited applications because we would like to keep a high level of discussion and avoid too much noise.
  2. I am not based in Berlin, can I still join?
    We aim to unite those who are regularly in Berlin and feel they are or want to be part of the growing blockchain community. If you don't live in Berlin, or are there regularly but feel you are still connected to this community somehow, you are welcome to apply.

The Slack channel should be a great feedback mechanism on anything you're starting or thinking about.
