Bitcoin, no matter how “memefied” or vilified, is the genesis of a profound innovation that is and will continue to fundamentally change how we interact in markets. That innovation, blockchain, is the foundation upon which all cryptocurrencies and digital assets are built.
Blockchain, or distributed ledger technology, is an architecture of trust. These systems provide transparency, verification, and immutability without having to trust a centralized third party. Blockchain is a technology that will redefine what trust, transparency, and inclusion mean in our markets. Additionally, the use cases for programmable actions within a blockchain ecosystem and the efficiency that comes with “code and let go.”
If you are still struggling to understand what Is behind the hype of this revolutionary technology and what the recent advancements in the state mean for the future, then the Texas Blockchain Council is a great place to start.
The Texas Blockchain Council is a non-profit industry association whose mission is to promote blockchain technology initiatives that drive growth and benefit the citizens of Texas.
“We exist to amalgamate the influence of our members, to advocate for blockchain-centric public policy initiatives, to educate members of government about the benefits of blockchain technology, and to provide subject matter expertise on topics related to blockchain and distributed ledger technology.”
The council is hosting the first annual Texas Blockchain Summit on October 8th, 2021 from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM at the AT&T Hotel & Conference Center at The University of Texas at Austin.
The summit will provide “a deep dive into the political and economic implications of protocol revolutions, especially Bitcoin” through three keynotes and fireside chats with a world-class lineup. One of those fireside chats will be with Senator Cynthia Lummis (R – Wyoming), the first outspoken bitcoin HODLer elected to public office. Click here for the agenda.
Tickets start at $315 for Early Bird General Admission until July 31st.
