Where to go to learn about blockchains & get involved (& meet me)?
Hi all,
many thanks for yesterday`s warm welcome, the upvotes and nice comments. I seriously did not expect that much ! 

I thought the following will be useful, as I often get asked where to go to learn more & get involved. As London is one of the most important blockchain cities, I expect some readers living here.  Here is a quick overview on what to do in London if you want to "get into blockchain":

- N.O.M.A.N. - my favourite meetup, founded in early 2015 with the purpose to connect startups and investors, and it of course still includes that purpose, but more important, it soon became a HUGE group of friends talking about the latest in blockchain world and everything futurist, while playing pool in the beautiful 1920 Bar in Islington. 
See http://www.meetup.com/N-O-M-A-N-London/ & join!
Organisers: Euros Evans & George McDonough
Date: Wednesdays every  3 weeks
Time: 6.30pm
Next: 3 August! The next meetup is in 3 days - it is also the day before I am going home,  so last chance to see me until autumn!


- London Women in Bitcoin: 
London Women in Bitcoin was set up in 2014, and this year grew large with dozens of guests attending, including female blockchain entrepreneurs. I often get told that a women involved in the sphere would be rare, but actually, they are not that rare - looking at https://www.meetup.com/London-Women-in-Bitcoin/events/232488906/, there must be 162 at least! London Women in Bitcoin has guest speakers, such as from Alice.si at the next meetup.
Organisers: Rhian Lewis & Neha Murarka
Date: Monthly
Time: 6.30 pm
Place: CodeNode, Moorgate
Next: Also on 3 August, this time on the same day as N.O.M.A.N.! I am most likely going to be at both for a bit...


- Coinscrum: Coinscrum is one of the largest blockchain related meetups in the world, see https://www.meetup.com/coinscrum/events/232920841/. It is also the first blockchain meetup in London I ever visited -  immediately after having moved  here more than 2 years ago. It includes guest speakers such as recently, the founder & CEO of  Cashaa, which one of my next posts is going to be about!
Organisers: Paul Gordon, Louis Chang, Tomer Kantor
Date: Monthly
Time: 6pm
Place: 93 Feet East, Shoreditch
Next: 16 August, with the Gnosis prediction platform


- SCC Meetup:
SCC is a new meetup that presents blockchain companies: https://www.meetup.com/City-of-London-Blockchain-Investors-Meetup-Group/
Organisers: Rupert Williams, Jeremy Woodgate
Date: bi-weekly
Time: 5.30pm
Place: Cote Brasserie, St Paul`s

- One of my favourite places in London is the Digital Catapult,  which occasionally does blockchain events:  https://digital.catapult.org.uk/

There are/have been a lot more, but I either did not get manage to see them yet (also because they are often clashing) or they are not currently active. Will update on anything new recommendable, also posts about meetups outside London & about conferences coming soon.

--> There is a (one-off) Cointelegraph Meetup today, 1 August at Imperial College - Victoria Vaughan, the CEO, will share insights on marketing strategy for blockchain startups: https://www.meetup.com/cointelegraph/events/232677406/ 

Looking forward to see you!

Your 
Blockchain Girl
