As we transition from in-person meetups to virtual meetups it is still important to remember to maintain social distancing and do all we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Also, please don’t forget to follow the CDC recommendations to protect from coronavirus infection:
- Clean your hands often;
- Social distancing;
- Stay home if you’re sick;
- Wear a mask if you do need to go out;
- Clean and disinfect frequently used surfaces.
We all have a part to play in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and getting our society back to normal as quickly as possible. And the most recent data indicates we are flattening the curve, which means we can get back to normal sooner rather than later.

It is a quiet week in the blockchain community, which is understandable given the circumstances. Stay with us though as we should have much more to report in coming week s as many organizations have been scrambling to convert physical meetups to virtual meetups.
With that in mind, here are the planned events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week:
