It’s finally here. Join us on Thursday the 15th for our latest meetup called “For the People, By the People: Blockchain and Government.” During the meetup, we’ll learn how blockchain solutions can solve government problems and drive civic value.
And don’t forget to keep the following Thursday evening free too because Women in Blockchain will serve up part 2 of their DeFi workshop focused on Yield Farming. If you missed the first session no worries, you can catch up with Part 1 here. And thanks to the Women in Blockchain for recording the first session and making it available.

Recently, the United States Postal Service filed a patent application for a blockchain-based voting process: another sign that blockchain technology can solve some of the biggest problems faced by our government today. This virtual meetup will bring together a “who’s who” of government and business leaders to discuss using blockchain to solve government problems and drive civic value.

At the second meeting of Cardano Blockchain Worcester, the Cardano community will talk about the latest news in Cardano and make plans for local engagement.

DeFi. Yield Farming. Liquidity Mining. Have you been hearing these terms in 2020, but aren’t clear on what they mean? In the second part of this two-part workshop series, we will look at the new hype around Yield Farming and what the good intentions are around governance as well as the fallbacks of an emergent ecosystem being able to spin up a random token for yield scams.
