Start the New Year with a new internet for decentralised apps. Introducing Blockstack, a community that lets developers and creators own their data while maintaining privacy, security and freedom.
Wait what is Blockstack you ask?
Blockstack is a decentralized application stack. It allows and enables the user to own their data and apps run without remote servers.
We’ll kick off the first Techneeks Meetup of 2019 with a session that will focus on the history, the values of the project, how it works, and the problems it solves along with the benefits of being a part of the community.
Today, Blockstack is maintained by a community of 7,000 developers who were attracted to the platform for its stance on users’ fundamental digital rights.
Did you know that Blockstack funds developers and teams who are building decentralized apps in their ecosystem for being simply pioneers in the space? Learn more about the concept of app mining at this session.
