It’s an exciting week coming up with plenty to keep blockchain enthusiasts busy, including our own Boston Blockchain Association event ‘How Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) Will Change the World‘. On Thursday, May 28, join us to learn how blockchain is changing the world’s financial infrastructure.
We’ve moved online to offer our event to as many people as possible while still respecting social distancing guidelines. Moreover, we believe that it’s important to keep yourself and others safe by following the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of coronavirus:
- Clean your hands often
- Watch for signs of COVID such as fever and coughing
- Stay home if you’re sick
- Wear a mask if you do need to go out
- Learn about CDC recommended mitigation strategies to reduce spread
- Clean and disinfect frequently used surfaces
If you aren’t already, please help support technology and blockchain development in Boston by becoming a member of the Boston Blockchain Association today. All you have to do is apply to become a member (takes just a minute of your time) to be sure you’ll stay informed on all Boston area blockchain events. Remember that the blockchain is digital and reduces the chance of contracting any type of illness.

In the world of blockchain, fintech and finserv are the oldest and therefore most mature implementations. In this Virtual Meetup, we will cover three key topics. Miko Matsumura will be speaking on what it takes to transform the world’s financial infrastructure to make it more inclusive, more participatory, more democratic and more rewarding for all stakeholders. Central Bank Digital Currency is one of the hottest categories in the space. David Markley with Algorand is intimately involved with the Marshall Island SOV project. And Thomas Arul, CEO of Bleumi has been working on digital currency payment systems since 2018. So, grab a beverage and some pasta, and prepare to feast on Digital Currency, CBDC, and Payments.
