A lot of people talk about the “big” things that blockchain could do or have very aspirational discussions. This panel discussion brings to ground level ways to make this very tangible right here in Washington and in the next 18 months. From funding and regulatory issues to the tangible technology rollouts... What’s practical today?? This potentially becomes a model to be expanded to other cities and larger conversations.

  • How is funding done and what are fundamental differences in the blockchain industry that are driving this change?
  • What makes a solid business model for blockchain businesses?
  • Picks and Shovels vs. Industry solutions - Which drives adoption faster?
