I’ll like to meet and see Mr Hua from DOS speak about Blockchain adoption in the US. DOS private sales on BitMax was lit. Congratulations to all who got in.

This would be the first time BitMax is having a meetup in Chicago/US. I hope George talks about plans to open BitMax to users from US.

I don't see that happening anytime soon. The US government is suspicious of the digital asset industry and it may take a long while before they finally accept the industry. Lets hope for the best.

I see loads of experience in the team, I think people will not regret attending

I am getting to know of this association reading this article and going by the amount of time they have spent on the blockchain I think they are credible and could make a lot of impact in the general adoption of the blockchain

great, opportunity for the citizens of the US to get involve with

Wow. This meetup is going to be awesome.
