FutureMakers Talks: New Kids on the Blockchain

Please join us for an evening of networking, refreshments, and thought-provoking discussion on the use cases of Blockchain technology.

Keynote: Greg Wolfond, SecureKey Technologies

What Makes Blockchains Special: Niloo Ravaei, Blockgeeks

Building Solutions Using Smart Contracts: Karim Hamasni, RBC

The Future of Blockchain: Intersections with Other Exponential Technologies: Ananya Chadha, TKS
