Grincon U.S. Conference

Join us for the first ever U.S. Grin conference!

Grin is an implementation of the MimbleWimble protocol. Grin utilizes proven cryptography combined with state-of-the-art advances in privacy and scalability. It’s one of the few community-driven, open-source blockchains with no ICO, no pre-mine, and no founder’s reward.

At this first ever U.S. Grin Conference, you’ll witness Grin’s growing ecosystem. You’ll meet the developers, cryptographers, and people behind the project. You’ll also get first glimpses of what entrepreneurs are building on Grin. Automated trading apps are revolutionizing the cryptocurrency market now. We are in the process of launching one. Refer to learn about BitQT app which is a bitcoin automated trading app.

Grin relies on the community for funding. Many people have donated their time and expertise. Your participation and support helps grow the effort. Proceeds from this conference will be donated to the Grin Project.
