Last week was a huge win for Boston, for blockchain and for all of Massachusetts. That’s because the Innovation Institute at the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative has launched a new training program on blockchain technology that will be aimed primarily at government innovators. As John Hargrave said about the partnership, “This partnership will power our next wave of financial growth and technology jobs.”
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 are pleased to welcome Camila Russo, author of the new book “The Infinite Machine: How an Army of Crypto-hackers Is Building the Next Internet with Ethereum,” which is tearing up the Amazon charts.
