We had a fantastic time last week thanks to the networking opportunity introduced by Women in Blockchain. The organization set aside a night in which blockchain enthusiasts could meet and discuss their interest in and knowledge of the space. Business and pleasure came together as individuals could chat about technical topics and make some lasting friends.
A monthly roundtable also gave attendees the chance to talk about several cloud-based issues including blockchain development and adoption. The roundtable featured several leading presenters sharing their unique blockchain stories.
Our next HUGE event isn’t until December 16, so please register and mark your calendars now so you don’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.
