Ethereum has been the traditional go-to for ICO and blockchain projects given its powerful token issuance and smart contracting capabilities. However, Stellar is gaining significant steam. Kik, the social network behind the KIN token, recently announced its intent to move their token infrastructure from Ethereum onto Stellar. Additionally, SatoshiPay recently announced that it will build its nanopayments infrastructure on Stellar, after trialing bitcoin and IOTA.
As the Stellar Network attracts greater developer attention, the community begins to question: what are the optimal use cases of Stellar, compared to Ethereum? What are the performance, security, cost, and ideological tradeoffs associated with each platform? There is no one-size-fits-all answer: come to this meetup to learn about the benefits and weaknesses of both Ethereum and Stellar. This event will feature Virgil Griffith, Research Scientist at the Ethereum Foundation, and Lindsay Lin, counsel and program manager at Stellar.org and Lightyear.io.

Attendees will receive a gift of XLM at the end of the event 😉
