Blockchain technology and its associated currencies and markets will be the infrastructure on which much of the world's economic future will be built. We are creating a community, The Block, to cater to enthusiasts of blockchain technology and cryptoassets. It will be the on-ramp to the world of programmable money, distributed ledgers and decentralized applications for 10s of millions of people. Utilizing token-based incentives, The Block will cut through the noise and surface signal in an accessible way across key areas of blockchain and cryptoassets: social engagement and discourse, market information, media, education and much more. Everyone should have access and an opportunity to participate in the next great expansion of the internet driven by blockchains and cryptoassets. The Block will provide access for the next billion.
