This is a group for anyone interested in decentralized applications and blockchains. Whether you are building on top of the Ethereum platform or simply want to discuss the possibilities of a cryptoeconomy, come join us.
Ethereum is a platform that makes it possible for any developer to build and publish next-generation decentralized applications.
In short: Ethereum is the web, without the web servers. Ethereum can be used to codify, decentralize, secure and trade just about anything: voting, domain names, financial exchanges, crowdfunding, company governance, contracts and agreements of most kind, intellectual property, and even smart property thanks to hardware integration.
