It is our pleasure to announce that BitSpace will be hosting Scandinavia’s first ever EOS meetup.
The event will take place at Radisson Blue Plaza Hotel, Oslo’s tallest skyscraper (118 meters/387 feet), this week on Wednesday evening. Attendance is free.
Dan Larimer’s (@dan / @dantheman) third major blockchain project is his largest so far. Daniel Larimer has developed two of the most utilized blockchains in the world, measured in number of transactions (BitShares and Steemit), and EOS is now about to become the biggest ICO ever with over 1 billion USD raised.
We will enlighten our fellow Norwegians about what is potentially the most innovative project in the entire crypto space. We hope the event will help spark the interest of investors and most importantly of developers. If our friend Chris Coney (@marketingmonk) is right about EOS being "the Microsoft of blockchain," we might be in for something special.
