We are putting on the meetup with support from the Ethereum Foundation and other members of the Ethereum community, and now we can reveal the agenda for the follow-on event — which will run from 1-6 PM.
All tickets for the TC Sessions: Blockchain event are sold out, but we do have an allocation remaining for the TechCrunch Ethereum Meetup. However, attendees of the TC Sessions: Blockchain event who wish to attend the Ethereum Meetup will need to purchase a separate pass.
Tickets for the meetup can be purchased here — they are priced at 50 CHF plus VAT, that’s around $50 at current rates.
