If you remember last week I asked you to get ready for India Blockchain Week 2017 this September in Mumbai, India.
Also, I talked about the euphoria of one of the fastest-growing technologies in the world ( i.e. The Blockchain).
Inline with that the India Blockchain Week or IBW seems to be, by far, the biggest effort to bring that euphoria to India.
For those who’ve come in late, India Blockchain Week 2017 is a five-day-long blockchain festival powered by Somish & a London-based company which is slated to be held in Mumbai, India from 22-26th September 2017. The blockchain week will kick-off with a 3-day long Blockchain Hackathon – “Hack-The-Block” followed by 2-day long Blockchain Conference.
Now I know that before deciding to participate in such an international event you might want to find out who will be speaking at the event and what they would be speaking about.
