Blockchain is Boo-tiful and this Halloween week features an in-depth presentation about the role of blockchain in the transportation industry from the Blockchain in Transportation Alliance. Otherwise, it’s a fairly quiet week for blockchain enthusiasts, giving a perfect break to enjoy all the spooks and goblins of the holiday season.
Be sure, though, to register for the R3 Corda bootcamp coming up next week. R3 is one of the largest enterprise blockchain companies in the world and this bootcamp is hosted by AWS as well. This event will provide you with the perfect opportunity to learn about tech while networking with blockchain veterans in Boston.
Please help support technology, blockchain development, and Boston by considering becoming a member of the Boston Blockchain Association today. All you have to do is apply to become a member to be sure you’ll stay informed on all Boston area blockchain events.
Here are the planned events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week.
