Blockchain For Good : at Tech For Good meet-up
"Blockchain has been heralded as the next big thing in the social sector and has fast risen from emerging trend to a disruptor in the development and humanitarian space alone. But can it really address some of the social and environmental challenges we’re facing? In this meetup we’ll explore the role of blockchain technologies in helping to address the world’s challenges. We’ll hear lightning talks from ‘blockchain for good’ pioneers, before breaking into a panel discussion around whether this tech offers hype or hope. We’ll be asking how social impact ventures, NGOs and charities can capitalise from the use of blockchain to deliver on their social and environmental agendas, and which applications of distributed ledger technology are already having the biggest impact. Join us on 14 November at Techspace London in Shoreditch to find out.
Confirmed speakers: Cécile Baird, Founding Partner, Blockchain for Good (BC4G) | Raphäel Mazet, Founder and CEO of Alice.Si | David Shepherdson, Director of the not-for-profit company developing HullCoin."
