My third meetup was held on the 17th of March in Lagos, I had a few friends and colleagues come over o the venue and we had a great discussion and proper introduction of the Aeternity Blockchain Platform. As is common place very few of the participants had heard of the word Blockchain, although a few were familiar with the word bitcoin but never knew the platform/protocol on top which it was built. Session lasted for about an hour and it was a fully interactive one. To Ensure that meetups are progressive in nature I decided that we would move a step higher during each meetup, taking from the very non-developer basics to the Aeternity developer eccentrics.
We dwelt on the following topics.
- Aeternity Aembassador Guide
- Setting up Airgap wallet/vault
*Mainet Migration Phases
- Aeternity Starfleet program
Questions Asked during the meetup include
*Will smart contracts eventually get rid of third parties?
*How much does a typical transaction cost when sending Aeternity tokens?
*Is the Aeternity Starfleet program open to Nigerians too and must I be a developer before i can apply?
Overall meetup was awesome and i look forward to My 4th meetup where we intend to Work ourselves through the “Aeternity Development 101” tutorial on dacade.org
