Montréal Project SAFE: Montreal Meetup

On Monday 2 March 2015 from 19h00 to 21h00.

3485 Boulevard Saint-Laurent, Montréal, Montréal

The Economics of Safecoin

Following the recent release of the Safecoin paper, I was considering organizing a meetup on Safecoin. I am really glad to announce that I have found someone to help me organize such a meetup.

About 2 months ago, I met Joel at the Bitcoin Embassy when he started working at the co-working space. I've been talking to him about the SAFE Network whenever I see him and he's been studying it on his own.

Joel and I have decided to prepare a presentation about the economic principles behind Safecoin.


The presentation will be divided in 3 parts:

1. The purpose of the SAFE Network

2. The role of Safecoin in the SAFE Network

3. Advantages and use cases of Safecoin

Here are some of the resources that we've used to prepare this presentation:

• Safecoin: The Decentralised Network Token

• The Economics of Safecoin

• Consensus Without a Blockchain

• Keeping Safecoin Decentralised

• Safecoin, why it’s safe and what it means for us all

• Data Is The Most Valuable Commodity On Earth

In preparation for this presentation, we also interviewed Daniel Dabek, CTO of Infinity Algorithms (Daniel is currently working on a decentralized exchange (e.g. safecoin/bitcoin) on the SAFE Network) and Nick Lambert, COO of MaidSafe.


6:45PM - 7:00 PM Arrive before the presentation starts and meet other Safecoin Enthusiasts
