Community, Blockchain & Trust: How Decentralized Communities Will Power The Future


May 25, 2018, 12:30 – 3:30 AM

Join CMX Series Seattle in learning about the intersection of blockchain technology and building community.

About this event

Blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt institutions, economics, and even social structures if it finds its "killer app." But what many analysts and technologists are missing right now is the importance of community in building on blockchain technology. For more networks to be built and be truly valuable, people need a stronger incentive to come together and use the blockchain. This will require the efforts of strong community leaders.

In this panel discussion, we will dive quickly into what opportunities blockchain presents for community builders, how to build trust beyond and inside a network, how to build a community around your blockchain project and more. 

Our panelists are all leaders in the industry, who have built communities around blockchain and continue to do so every day in their work. Learn from the smartest in Seattle at this meetup, and then stick around to meet your fellow attendees and learn more about blockchain technology.
