We aren’t out of the woods yet, so please continue following 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

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.
As society begins reopening and we have the chance to get out once again, here are the planned events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week:
Thursday, May 7, 2020 8:15 AM – 9:30 AM EST
This is a Live Virtual Event being hosted by Algorand. In just a few short months, Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) have gone from a seemingly theoretical abstraction to become serious discussions in central bank boardrooms around the world. This live Q&A will feature the team behind the SOV – the world’s first sovereign digital currency, for the Republic of the Marshall Islands and will cover topic such as: Why CBDC, Why blockchain for CBDC, Acceleration of CBDC and what the future holds, How you too can develop a clear path to adoption. It’s free to join – Register Here
Wednesday, May 6, 2020 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM EDT
Our Blockchain Panel of VC investors and industry experts will discuss how the coronavirus impacts their investing and the overall impact of the outbreak on the future of the blockchain industry. Our panelists will come from several industries especially pertinent in the coronavirus environment such as: healthcare, supply chain, grocery and food, others. Join in by signing up here.
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.
