The Boston Blockchain Association (BBA) has some big plans for 2022. As the need for blockchain expands, the BBA wants to be at the center of all the action to boost education and help businesses adapt. We have lots of great people behind us. Now, we need financial support. We’re asking our readers to forward this email to at least one or two prospective corporate partners or sponsors who can chat with us about making the group bigger and better than ever.
The goal of the BBA is to bring about more blockchain events like the one featured last week. Our discussion of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), crypto and the metaverse was one of our most attended courses to date and received an average 4.9 star rating from attendees! We’re proud of this, and we’re offering you another chance to digest the information this course presents. To view the event recording, click here.
In 2021, the BBA delivered more than 30 courses that impacted more than 4,000 people. We supported the new Massachusetts Blockchain Bill introduced by Rep. Kate Lipper-Garabedian, pushed significant government blockchain association events, and launched the first in-person blockchain gathering in more than a year. To learn more about it, check out the link here.
We can do so much more in 2022 with your help, so please get in touch about making a financial donation to our cause today. Thank you for being part of the blockchain revolution!
Our next HUGE event isn’t until December 16, so please register and mark your calendars now so you won’t miss out. 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.
