Decentralized Exchanges + We're moving to Discord!

Minnesota Cryptocurrency Events and News

Join us this Friday to discuss decentralized exchanges. Normal exchanges provide a single point of failure, which has resulted in numerous hacks and general uncertainty. Decentralized exchanges on the other hand offer a solution as they allow users to retain control of their funds throughout the trading process. We will discuss their advantages, disadvantages, and the status of current projects.

We’re moving from Slack to Discord

Today we will be migrating from Slack to Discord. Our Slack community has grown to over 200 users, and we are very excited to grow even more on Discord!

Slack lacks moderation features, spam filtering, complete message histories, unlimited file sharing, voice chat, and much more. Which makes sense since Slack was built for corporate teams.

Discord’s intended audience is gamers, but many large communities have switched from Slack to Discord, including other blockchain projects and cryptocurrency related subreddits such as r/Cryptocurrency. It’s an ideal choice going forward.

We look forward to seeing you online, be sure to spread the migration news!
