This week we highly recommend you block off your Wednesday evening to attend the meetup, DeFi Workshop Part 1: Building Blocks, hosted by Women in Blockchain. It’s the first of a two-part workshop (the second part is October 22 so mark your calendar) that’s meant to demystify decentralized finance. And while you’re making time in your calendar make a note for October 15 as well. That’s when the BBA will host “For the People, By the People: Blockchain and Government.” More details will be forthcoming in next week’s newsletter, but we guarantee this is going to be a big deal.
If you aren’t already, please help support technology and blockchain development in Boston by becoming a member of the Boston Blockchain Association today. All you have to do is apply to become a member (takes just a minute of your time) to be sure you’ll stay informed on all Boston area blockchain events. Blockchain technology is the future of many global industries. Get involved in the future!
Here are the planned virtual and in-person events in Boston’s blockchain community for the coming week:
Wednesday, September 30, 2020, 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM EDT
DeFi. Yield Farming. Liquidity Mining. Have you been hearing these terms in 2020, but aren’t clear on what they mean? The first part of this two-part workshop series will take you through the basic building blocks of the Decentralized Finance landscape, covering MakerDAO, Compound, and Automated Market Makers (AMMs) like Uniswap.
Friday, October 2, 2020, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
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. Determining a quantifiable ROI and credible timeline are keys to embarking on a successful blockchain journey. We will explore the common obstacles encountered and how to overcome them to get your blockchain project launched.
