A new blockchain is arriving in Atlanta, Georgia.
Friday the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) reported on the upcoming "Atlanta Blockchain Week" event. The event will start on September 29th and will end on October 7th – just over a week.
Atlanta's Blockchain Week website says:
Atlanta Blockchain Week is a collective week of events with the collaboration of blockchain community organizations and startups.
A trip to "Wacoinda."
The event will revolve around a central "Tech Village" and will include a series of perspectives and disciplines. AJC describes the upcoming scene:
The base camp is the Tech Village, but events also take place in other places in the city. For example, "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 bitcoin will be held in Monarch Tower on Peachtree Road. There will also be a class of cryptocurrency developers, but that position will be determined.
Crypto's House in the Southeast
In August Medium collaborator Stacey Schneider noted Atlanta-oriented Atmosphere of the last few years. Schneider remains optimistic that Atlanta has the potential to become a center for blockchain technology:
One thing I'm learning is that Atlanta is a point of reference for this new technological frontier. It makes sense when you remember that Atlanta was for years a payment center with giants like First Data, Equifax, NCR, Worldpay, FIS and Global Payments.
The same Blockchain Week in Atlanta begin with the Atlanta summit dApp. The gathering is a networking event that brings together executives, leaders and other influential figures making up the most important blockchain event networks in the state of the Southern United States:
DappAtlanta is a summit and shows that connects over hundreds of industry leaders , business decision makers, technology innovators and investors. Based on unparalleled content and exceptional networking opportunities, dAppAtlanta is part of the largest Blockchain event series dedicated to SudEast.
