Blockchain on August 1 at Austin Forum
Discover all the power, potential and possibilities of blockchain technology at the Tuesday, August 1 edition of the free monthly lecture series known as the Austin Forum.
Titled “Blockchain: Transforming Business, Society and Humanity,” this session will reveal how this technology has the power to be used for a wide variety of applications, such as recording land ownership documents, cryptographically secured health records, tamper-proof voting records, vehicle registries, and disbursing fraud-proof government benefits or digital identities for refugees lacking government documents.
Speakers include Christa Clark (SkunkworxLab), Jeremy Drzal (BLOCK 512), Ashish Gadnis (BanQu), and Richard Hurley (Governance Chain). Gadnis’ solo presentation about this topic at SXSW 2017 (“Blockchain Opportunities Abound: The Next Four Years!”) drew a standing-room only crowd in March. His insights about how this technology can fight global inequality are revealed in this short video.
Location for the August 1 event is Galvanize at 119 Nueces Sreet. Doors and complimentary bar open at 5:45 pm, with the panel beginning at 6:15 pm sharp. RSVP here to attend!
As an added bonus, the attendee who asks the best question during the Q&A portion of the August edition of the Austin Forum will win a free badge to SXSW 2018.
