The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) reported on Friday about the upcoming ‘Atlanta Blockchain Week.’ The highly anticipated event is set to begin on the 29th of September and last until the 7th of October.
According to the official website for the Atlanta Blockchain Week:
The Atlanta Blockchain Week is a collective week of events with the collaboration of blockchain community organizations and startups.
The ‘Tech Village’ is set to be the center of attention as it will be integrating a variety of outlooks and disciplines. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution outlined the specifics of the event as follow:
Base camp is the Tech Village, but events also take place at other venues around town. For instance, “Welcome to Wacoinda: Love, Collaboration and Blockchain” will be in Grant Park, “Women of Blockchain” will be at Ponce City Market and a blockchain class that includes $20 of bitcoin will be held at Monarch Tower on Peachtree Road. There will also be a cryptocurrencies developers class, but that location is to-be-determined.
Stacy Schneider, a Medium contributor and the editor of Objective Blockchain, has documented Atlanta’s embrace of blockchain technology. She remains hopeful that Atlanta could become the hub for all things blockchain and writes:
One thing I am learning is that Atlanta is a hotspot for this new technology frontier. It makes sense when you remember Atlanta has been a payments hub for years with giants like First Data, Equifax, NCR, Worldpay, FIS and Global Payments.
The week-long event is set to begin with the dApp Atlanta summit which would provide a platform for executives, leaders and influential individuals to network at one of the most noteworthy blockchain events. The official website for the event states:
DappAtlanta is a Summit and exhibition connecting over hundreds of industry leaders, business decision makers, tech innovators and investors. Based on unrivaled content and exceptional networking opportunities, dAppAtlanta is part of the largest dedicated Blockchain Event Series in the SouthEast.
