There’s something to do this week as the Blockchain Investors Supergroup presents Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains. As you might have guessed, it will be all about the role of the blockchain in the supply chain, featuring industry heavyweights like Leanne Kemp, CEO and Founder of EverLedger, Kristen Michaud, Managing Director at InBlock, and Anndy Lian, Author of “Blockchain Revolution 2030”.

BBA has teamed up with the Blockchain Education Network (BEN) to distribute a Blockchain Talent Survey and Report aimed to help the industry understand the demand for talent and the gaps in blockchain education. BEN is a global non-profit network of universities, professors, and blockchain clubs that want to understand enterprise needs for blockchain talent so they can teach the next generation of leaders in the industry the appropriate skills.
We would like your organization to contribute to this survey at the link below. It should only take 10-15 minutes, and you will get free access to the Blockchain Talent Report that will be created after, along with free exclusive access to BEN’s massive pool of future talent for hire.

Here are the planned virtual and in-person events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week(s):
Thursday, May 27, 2021, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM EDT
You’ve heard that blockchain is radically improving supply chains by making products easier to track, from the raw materials to the finished goods. Imagine a world where you’ll be able to see not just where your coffee was grown or your iPhone was assembled, but every step in the process, all recorded on a transparent blockchain. This has huge implications for everything from fair trade and fair wages to making companies and governments far more efficient. (Yes, it’s possible!) We’ve put together a distinguished panel of supply chain and blockchain experts to give us a state of where the industry stands today
