Blockchain technology has been on your radar for some time. You’ve done your research, read the case studies and now you’re convinced that transitioning to a distributed ledger data management system is the right decision for your business. And you may be right! The current systems in place for managing business data are fragmented, vulnerable to fraud, and slow to detect falsification, whereas blockchain, a form of distributed ledger technology, can provide increased security, accountability, higher efficiencies and often times lower cost.
Interested in emerging technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence? What about environment-focused technologies related to recycling or reducing carbon emissions? If so, the MIT Enterprise Forum Startup Spotlight is happening next week in Boston and you won’t want to miss it. We’re excited Esprezzo has been selected to participate! Here’s what to expect.
This past Tuesday evening we held our latest blockchain education event, The Disruptive Power of Blockchain in Business, at General Assembly’s Boston campus. While our previous events covered introductory topics such as Blockchain 101 and An Introduction to Crypto Trading, this panel discussion focused on the real world business applications of blockchain technology that are impacting traditional business processes today. Not tomorrow, not five years from now, but today.
Our next General Assembly event is only two weeks away! Join us for The Disruptive Power of Blockchain in Business, where you'll hear industry experts in healthcare, supply chain, banking and IT talk about how blockchain technology is already transforming their businesses and what they expect to happen next.
This is Part 2 of a series on the blockchain developer job market.
In Part 1, we presented high level findings from our research on blockchain developer jobs as a result of surveying major U.S. recruiting sites. We were inspired to conduct our own research after seeing “Blockchain Developer” listed as the number one emerging occupation in LinkedIn’s 2018 U.S. Emerging Jobs Report. Quite a few people responded to Part 1 with insights and experience, and we’re excited to share insights from one of them here.
David Gadd consults with organizations regarding talent acquisition — specifically, helping them grow their in-house Blockchain teams. David didn’t agree with all our conclusions (it wouldn’t be very interesting if he did) so we reached out to have a conversation around what he’s been seeing, and are excited to report back to you with another perspective from an industry insider with their ear to the street.
Topics: Research & Analysis
How do developers view blockchains and what obstacles do they face? This is a question we continuously examine through conversations with developers and business owners, as well as by consuming articles, studies, and reports. One paper we came across recently, titled Blockchain in the Eyes of Developers, was an analysis of over 10 years of questions and answers at the cross section of software development and blockchain from Stack Overflow.

We kicked off our partnership with General Assembly last month by hosting “Blockchain 101”, a panel-formatted introduction to blockchain technology. With over 180 people registered for the event, the evening was a great success. In planning our next blockchain education event, one of the most requested topics is cryptocurrencies, currently one of the most visible applications of blockchain technology. How is one cryptocurrency different from another? How is the value of a cryptocurrency determined? How do I purchase a cryptocurrency?
A few weeks ago we held our first educational event as part of our partnership with General Assembly (GA): Blockchain 101, a free two-hour panel at the GA campus here in Boston. This session focused on the history of blockchains, the technology that makes blockchains possible, and the impact blockchain technology will have on the world in the years to come.
With over 80 attendees, this Blockchain 101 event was one GA Boston’s most popular panels to date.
Last week we visited Portsmouth, New Hampshire for the Free State Blockchain Digital Assets Conference, which brought together blockchain and crypto enthusiasts from industries including finance, education, e-commerce and energy to discuss and debate the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for tokenized assets. Here’s a recap of Day 1.
Last week over 3,000 CEOs, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, crypto investors, attorneys and blockchain developers congregated in Boston’s Seaport District at Token Fest to explore and debate the impact of blockchain and crypto investing. The city of Boston is often referenced as the birthplace of the American Revolution and it would be easy to draw a parallel to the crypto revolution many say is on the horizon (or already here). However, most attendees weren’t discussing revolution but rather adoption.
