I’ll be posting more information as it comes in. Hear it here first.
Date: Tuesday October 18th
Place: The Marvin Center Ballroom at The George Washington University Campus located at 800 21st St NW, Washington, DC 20052.
· Explore the basics of the technology
· Gain a better understanding of its disruptive potential across multiple industries and various government offices
· Understand the prospects and challenges of adopting Blockchain technology within both the US government and the private sector
· Learn more about specific projects underway inside the beltway and beyond and how they may ultimately impact the local job market.
Panel I – Regardless of your Blockchain IQ, your technological capabilities or where you are on the learning curve, this session is the equalizer. For the novice, learn the difference between crypto-currencies, the blockchain, ledger-based technologies, and smart contracts, what side chains are, why muti-sig and KRS are important. For the more experienced attendees, review the latest technological developments, the newest generation of crypto-currencies and much more.
Panel II – Deploying Blockchain Technology Part I: the Private Sector Experience. Bitcoin was the first – but certainly not the last – use case for blockchain technology. How is this ledger based technology being put to work in the financial services, health care and other industries. Which ones will be most significantly disrupted? And how fast? What are the challenges in developing, executing and bringing these projects to market.
Panel III – Deploying Blockchain Technology – Part II: The Government Experience. The Federal Government has its hands full, working hard to understand whether and to what extent laws and regulations they administer must be adapted to the technology. Agencies have to understand how the technology impacts entities they regulate. And many agencies are considering how the technology may affect their own operations. What will this mean for government employees and contractors?

Event Description: “Next Big Thing” Event | BLOCKCHAIN~ What Are The Potential Innovations And Business Possibilities For Entrepreneurs, Companies and Government
Blockchain is an emerging technology that facilitates transactions between trading partners. It has potential to disrupt every segment of banking and financial services. If you haven’t already heard of it, you will soon.
What is Blockchain? And What business possibilities and innovations will it spawn? Carol Van Cleef, Partner at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP and Founder Comptegrity, Inc., will help us explain Blockchain from the ground up. She will outline how Blockchain is reshaping commercial transactions, and how entrepreneurs can capitalize spinoff innovations.
If you are developing a new product idea – or thinking about launching one – you need to know about Blockchain. This session will feature thought leaders who will offer details about how the technology works, the outlook for future products and services, and how it will impact related industries.
This event is cosponsored by The George Washington University and The George Washington University’s School Of Business
