July 10: Austin Forum Covers Blockchain
If you want to catch up on the latest blockchain-related developments, trends, analysis, opinions and insights, then be sure to attend the Austin Forum on the evening of Tuesday, July 10.
Titled “Blockchain: Bringing the Transformation Home,” this session will give more information on this (relatively) new technology and how does it provide simplicity, enable security, remove ‘middlemen,’ and ultimately promise a more transparent-but-secure, peer-to-peer method of transactions with permanent records? Austin-based blockchain experts Jeremy Drzal (BLOCK512) and Karen Kilroy (kilroyblockchain.com) will explain all this and more — and will also talk about how Central Texas is positioned to become one of the international leaders in this blockchain revolution.
RSVP here for the Tuesday, July 10 edition of the Austin Forum. Hurry, as this event promises to sell out soon. Doors open at 5:45 pm and the presentation begins at 6:15. Location for the Austin Forum is the Austin Central Library at 710 West Cesar Chavez.
Also . . . note that “Blockchain & Cryptocurrency” is one of the new tracks for SXSW 2019. To this end, get your March Magic speaking proposals into the PanelPicker before the end-of-day July 20 deadline.
