C & # 39; is a new event in the city, and aims to be the biggest blockchain event in the southeast. It's called Atlanta Blockchain Week.
Wait, what's the blockchain?
To break it down: Bitcoin is a digital currency bought by millions of people around the world. These transactions are tracked by a decentralized computer network internationally, rather than by a government or a bank. The registration of these transactions, a sort of permanent ledger, is known as blockchain.
An increasing number of blockchain-based companies have arrived in Atlanta, so it may be useful to start getting familiar with the whole world. This series of events is a good way to do it.
Here are some things to know:
• The Atlanta Blockchain week actually extends only a week, from September 29th to October 7th. Also, there are a couple of pre-events, including a meetup and a hackathon. The event program provides you with all relevant information.
• The official week will be inaugurated by a corporate event called dApp Atlanta Summit on September 29th at Atlanta Tech Village. Representatives from the Bitcoin Embassy in Atlanta and investors interested in the Atlanta market should be there. Tickets are currently $ 15, but will go up to $ 20 a week before the event.
• The base camp is the Tech Village, but events also take place in other parts of 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 is to be determined.
