The Boston blockchain community has been doing an excellent job using technology to remain connected during these challenging times. Virtual meetups and social distancing measures are making the difference in the spread of COVID-19. Continuing in that vein the Boston Blockchain Association will be presenting a virtual meetup this coming Thursday entitled “Blockchain Regulation: How to Innovate in Massachusetts”. And we would love to see you there!
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.
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.
To keep moving in the right direction everyone needs to follow the CDC recommendations to protect from spreading 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
With that in mind, here are the planned virtual events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week:
Thursday, April 23, 2020 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM EDT
This panel brings together entrepreneurs who have faced regulation head on and the policy makers and advisors helping set these ground rules. Discussions will include impacts on how startups innovate, clarifying the concerns of regulators, and how Massachusetts can be best poised to lead in 2020.

The Boston Blockchain Association wants to remind you that Bitcoin and other digital currencies aren’t capable of carrying the viruses that make us ill, which is one more reason to keep at least part of your assets in digital form.
Tuesday, April 21, 2020 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM EDT
