Ah…summertime! Lazy days at the beach and the pool, backyard barbeques, and ice cream. These are what summer memories are made of. And this is what we hope you’re doing, while also staying safe and continuing to support blockchain initiatives.
It’s a quiet week here in Boston for blockchain activities, so why not enjoy a classic summer activity instead? Blockchain technology will still be here, and you’ll feel refreshed and ready to take on any challenge.
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. Digital blockchain technology is the future of many global industries. Get involved in the future!
Here are the planned virtual and in-person events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week:

What makes it easy or hard for people to relocate? How do jobs and the labor market factor in? Is labor being inefficiently allocated because people are more stuck in place than they need to be? How do the benefits of location-specific support systems, either cultural, economic, or governmental, lock people into continuing to live where they are? Basic income is a benefit that’s *not* tied to a particular location. To what extent can basic income allow people to be more geographically mobile and less stuck in place? What effects would this additional mobility have on our culture and our economy?
