An Introduction to Crypto
hosted by Andreessen Horowitz and #Angels

Join us for an event all about cryptocurrencies and cryptonetworks. Going beyond the hype of coin prices and ICOs, and instead focusing on the bigger picture of decentralization and why it matters, the event will also cover: the basics of the blockchain, the regulatory environment, and more. You’ll hear discussions and presentations from a wide range of experts -- including entrepreneurs, operators, legal professionals, and investors.

With the goal of bringing more women into this frontier space, this event is open to women of all backgrounds.
