Why Attend?

 

The Global Blockchain Summit is the cornerstone of Denver Blockchain Week, a gathering of experts from around the country sharing knowledge, tips, trends and insights about Blockchain, a breakthrough technology that enables the trusted digital registration & exchange of just about anything.  It will be a chance for the newcomer to learn the history and basics of this emerging technology, and for the familiar to learn more about its current and future applications.  Money, music, health records, car titles, certificates, company ownership, deeds, & digital identities are just a few options.   The format will be less traditional than a typical conference.  There will be large group presentations, small group lectures, lightning round discussions as well as time to interact with others in the field.  We are striving to make this the most valuable Global Blockchain Summit for you, the participant.  We have an emphasis on Global Women in Blockchain, equality, and diversity for the 2018 Summit.
