There are hundreds of distributed ledgers — why would you use Hedera Hashgraph? In this special meetup, we’ll hear from Hedera’s Brady Gentile on the state of their technology today, and then show two working demos of projects built on the platform. This Meetup is a new experiment for us: it’s a coast-to-coast collaboration with the San Diego and Sacramento Bitcoin and Blockchain Meetup groups, in conjunction with the Hedera Hashgraph Virtual Meetup. We’ll follow the main session with our small-group networking breakout rooms, where you’ll get a chance to mingle with blockchain enthusiasts from the West Coast! Join us.
Tuesday, September 22, 2020, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
This Meetup will feature a presentation by Pete Tiegen, Public Sector Leader For Blockchain Mobile / Emerging Tech Global Government Solutions Center Of Competence, IBM Services. This session will introduce a practical approach for identifying and prioritizing potential use cases for government agencies to demonstrate the benefits of piloting blockchain technologies.

We will explore the common obstacles encountered and how to overcome them to get your blockchain project launched.
