Blockbar Virtual Meetup | BlockBar Special: “Crypto Regulation in The Netherlands, the coming 5 years”

We want to stimulate and grow the blockchain community of The Hague.

Anouncement due to the Covid-19 virus:

Dear members,

This Friday we will discuss our topic in a digital setting due to the current COVID-19 situation. We think it is our responsibility to protect you, ourselves and our loved ones by being cautious and minimise our physical social gatherings.

However, that does not mean we need to minimise social activity! So we experimented with VR last week and we think we can have a nice discussion in our special prepared Blockbar VR hub.

You don’t need a headset, although that is extra immersive. If you are new to this environment, come in early and take time to poke around with options. We’ll hope to see you there and we hope to learn as much as we would do normally.

We will be meeting on
