Nearly a year ago we ventured out to find a business model that fits the open-source ethos of decentralization and autonomous organization. That birthed the idea of doing a technology cooperative in which the members will govern the direction of the protocol, organization and it’s people. At the onset of the new year, The RChain Cooperative was formed.
With the successful closing of the membership private token sale and registration open for co-op membership, we are all set for the first ever members’ meeting which will be held on October 24th at the Washington Hall in our hometown of Seattle.
The night before, on the 23rd, Greg and friends will be performing live music at the Finklestein Castle House so if you are in town please join the cooperative in celebration for a triumphant year. here is the link to the evite http://evite.me/FvQXbdrh9p.
If you are a member of The RChain Cooperative and plan on attending the meeting in person please RSVP at http://evite.me/HWdMTbZYx6
