We had a fantastic time last week with our Blockchain Employment Series. Attendees learned several tips and tricks about how they can market themselves in this growing industry and how they can look their best in front of blockchain employers.
Bear in mind that this week will feature a blockchain networking event hosted by Women in Blockchain. Meet those looking to expand their knowledge in the crypto space. Share your stories and insight while also making lasting friendships.
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.
