We had a great time last week at the Blockchain Careers Fair. Those looking for employment in the blockchain space were given insight about what jobs are available in this new and innovative industry. Companies like Accenture were in attendance to discuss what open positions they had and what they expected from potential candidates.
Our next HUGE event isn’t until December 16, so please register and mark your calendars now so you won’t miss out. Because you won’t want to miss A Very Special Evening with Chris Giancarlo, CFTC Chairman Emeritus & CryptoDad. In this exclusive BBA event, you’ll hear about Giancarlo’s personal story, detailing his forays into the world of Wall Street to his tenure as the 13th Chairman of the CFTC, where he pushed for the agency to recognize the digitization of markets. You’ll learn how he’s using his growing fame as a Twitter presence to promote cryptocurrencies as the natural successor to America’s current failing financial market infrastructure.
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.

Here are the planned virtual and in-person events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week(s):
Friday, December 10, 2021, 11 AM to 12 PM CDT
A growing fad in the blockchain space, DAO stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organization. This members-only course teaches attendees all about MetaCartel, a new kind of DAO coordinated by code and smart contracts that’s funding ETH projects all over the world.
Learn how DAOs work and how you can establish one all your own. This course is interactive, so be prepared for a series of steps you’ll have to follow through a screenshare. You’ll have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session afterwards. Only paid members of Bitcoin Market Journal can attend this course.

We are thrilled to welcome J. Christopher Giancarlo, Chairman Emeritus of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), and one of the most important blockchain technology champions in U.S. government. Dubbed “CryptoDad” for his impassioned plea to Congress to acknowledge cryptocurrencies as the inevitable product of a fast-growing technological wave and a free marketplace, Chris Giancarlo is considered one of “the most influential individuals in financial regulation.” (International Financial Law Review). Connect with him here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/j-christopher-giancarlo-77257111/
This discussion will be facilitated by Geoffrey Elkind, a U.S. licensed securities and commodities attorney with over 25 years of global consulting experience delivering financial sector policy, legal and regulatory reform projects — along with their supporting technologies: https://www.linkedin.com/in/geoffreyelkind/ We hope you’ll join us for this one-time virtual event, along with a chance to meet Chris and Geoffrey after the event in our breakout room.
