SXSW PanelPicker Tip #10: Blockchain
Proposals to be considered as a speaker for SXSW 2019 in Austin are now being accepted via the PanelPicker interface. Maximize your chances of success with this process by reading the tips revealed daily in this space between now and July 20.
Because SXSW is always evolving and improving, we’ve revised many of the tracks for next March. In addition to the new “Cannabusiness” track, we’ve also added a track focused on “Blockchain & Cryptocurrency” to the mix. We encourage members of the SXSW community who are developing innovative products and use-cases for these new technologies to enter a proposal in this new category. As with “Cannabusiness,” the “Blockchain & Cryptocurrency” track will occur in the second half of SXSWeek. Lots of music industry professionals are in Austin during this portion of the event, so perhaps your speaking proposal covers how blockchain will reshape entertainment.
