Snoop Dogg to perform at Ripple bash
Coindesk is partnering with the New York City Economic Development Corporation for a "Blockchain Week NYC" scheduled for May. Rising cryptocurrency Ripple will be on hand, and has tapped the rap master himself, Snoop Dogg, to perform during a Ripple VIP event on May 15. Ripple will give away ten tickets to the event through its Twitter feed.
Ripple’s "Community Night" event is designed to celebrate the company’s work in cryptocurrency and distributed ledger technology. In making the announcement, Ripple said, "As special thanks to those who are building liquidity, validating transactions, developing on the XRP Ledger, looking to xRapid as a liquidity solution and sharing the good word about XRP’s many benefits, we’re hosting a special night."
There is a chance for non-invitees to win tickets to attend the event. The first takes place tonight through Ripple’s Trivia Night and the second will begin on May 2 through the company’s "Make the Meme" event. Eight tickets will be up for grabs through the trivia contest, in which contestants must correctly respond to three questions in an hour through a single tweet. Those questions will be published at 4:00 PM PDT today, and the winners will be announced tomorrow.
The "Make the Meme" event centers around two images Ripple will release on May 2. Twitter users must create a caption for one of the two and post it within 24 hours. The two winners will have their names announced on May 4.
