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 panel discussion is happening April 16 at General Assembly’s Summer Street Boston location, and is part of a series of learning events we’re organizing in partnership with GA.
Thanks to countless case studies and consortium led ‘Proofs of Concept’, we no longer have to hypothesize what blockchain technology could do but rather evaluate the impact that it’s already having. As the ROI becomes increasingly clear, adoption will soon follow.
