Why we chose BCH

To be honest, BCH is one of the most amazing Blockchain technologies we have ever seen in terms of its scalability, security and potentiality with smart contract in the future. 

There are some outstanding projects operating based on BCH or associated with BCH, for instance: Yours.org, Purse.io, Wormhole project, Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP) and many more. 

We intend to attract more developers through these events and eventually build a stronger community with real-world use cases.

How do I team up?

You can come alone and meet with other talents here and team up. Or you can have your friends as a team to come over beforehand.

Do I have to pay for anything?

What do I take with me?
