It’s a quiet week coming in which you can digest all the information delivered recently regarding decentralized finance (DeFi). And mark your calendars because later in November, there’s plenty to immerse yourself in, including our event on Blockchain and Digital Ticketing on the 12th, followed by the launch event for the new book, Blockchain Success Stories, on the 19th.
We’d appreciate it if you could take a moment of your time to complete a short (30 second) survey to help us improve your experience with the Boston Blockchain Association in the future. You can access the survey here. Thank you in advance for your time and attention.

Here are the planned virtual and in-person events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week:
Thursday, November 12, 2020, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM EST (mark your calendar)
Blockchain technology creates a new type of digital ticket model that enables venues to bypass Will Call windows, remotely issue tickets, and open new lines of communication if events need to be rescheduled. Even better, digital ticketing lets venues know exactly who is attending their shows — resulting in a better, safer experience for everyone. Attend this rich and diverse conversation to hear about the future of the arts!
Thursday, November 19, 2020, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM EST (mark your calendar)
Our new book is here! BLOCKCHAIN SUCCESS STORIES contains ten page-turning stories of the visionaries who are rewiring the world through the new technology called blockchain. From the founder of Napster building a global wireless network to an Indian immigrant re-engineering the American electoral system to the team that created a $100 million marketplace for virtual cats, each case study comes with hard-won lessons, explained with easy-reference takeaways and user-friendly diagrams.
In this one-night-only book launch event, we’ll give you the behind-the-scenes story on our adventures in interviewing these blockchain all-stars, along with “blockchain best practices” that you can use to write your own success story. We’ll be giving away THREE new copies of our new book to attendees.
