As I wasn’t able to attend the #b1june event in Washington DC I was super excited to be invited to the 1st EOS Birthday meetup in Sydney! Hosted by Oscar Ji from the Sydney Blockchain Centre in association with GenerEOS and EOSphere.

I was actually fashionable late, but I did have a good reason! I had just finished watching the #b1june event and was flat out writing this article covering the event. Nothing gets in the way of an EOSwriter deadline, even free food and drinks!

Live stream to #b1june

The hour or so I did spend at the meetup was great, I met Sean from Emanate, Daniel from Treos, Crypto Tim and all the GenerEOS and EOSphere team members not in Washington, plus many others from the Australian EOS community.

One of the highlights of the meetup was an EOS quiz consisting of 21 questions. Split into teams Crypto Tim’s team came in 3rd, EOSwriter 2nd and Emanate taking the win with 19/21! We got 18/21 but could have easily been 20 as one of the questions I misheard and another I had right but changed last minute! I know excuses, excuses…..

Below you can find the quiz if you’re interested in testing your EOS knowledge, answers can be found on the very bottom of this article. Let us know your score in the comments and don’t cheat!!!
