Innovation develops within a complex regulatory, financial, social and global ecosystem. We provide a space in Washington DC for nuanced collaboration between public and private stakeholders focused on using blockchain technology to accomplish tangible goals.
We need products, not promises. This industry is crowded with claims and platitudes, but few real-world solutions. BlockShop provides space and connections to help blockchain builders build.
Dead Engineers Society is a network of engineers who help each other to get their projects off the ground. It acts as a grassroots incubator and an open-source foundation focusing on supporting technology that brings a positive impact on society and can benefit people beyond BlockShop. The participating engineers agree to contribute to each other's projects on a voluntary basis without claiming the ownership or enforcing any licensing. Our expertise spans across Software Development, IT Security, DevOps, AI, Neuroscience, and Applied Linguistics. In addition to this, we help early-stage projects with infrastructure resources, project management, and hiring efforts.
BlockShop organizes and hosts events with leaders from Wall Street, venture capital, the technology community, and government. Our events focus exclusively on concrete applications of blockchain solutions – i.e., products, not promises.
We also host networking events for BlockShop members and newbies. Rotating themes will include start-up pitch nights, group brainstorming for specific industry issues, engagement with regulators and other policymakers, brass-tacks how-to talks, and more.
