This year’s Global Blockchain Summit, one of the world’s top assembly of blockchain experts co-founded by John Carpenter and Hans Hultgren, will take place April 19-20 in Denver. During the Summit, global blockchain pundits will share knowledge, tips, trends and insights as others learn the history and basics of this emerging technology as well as its current and future applications. The impact of blockchain on a range of spheres, such as the future of money, music, business, marketing, health records, car titles, certificates, company ownership, deeds, digital identities among others, will be explored at the event as over 50 speakers take the stage.
Among significant announcements that will be made during the Summit, central will be the U.S. launch of Global Women in Blockchain (GWB), a global ecosystem of partnerships of women dedicated to blockchain innovation, education and adoption. The U.S. launch will be captured live, the footage from which will go into an upcoming documentary focused on GWB not only as an organization but also as an exponentially growing social movement.
Founded by Nina Nichols (Resolution Research, ClueChain LLC), GWB received an enthusiastic reception at the Global Leaders Forum in Seoul, South Korea, when Mila Popovich, Global Chair, launched its Asian participation during Women’s History Month, at the invitation of the honorable Dr. Youngsook Park. The Global Leaders Summit, held at the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is sponsored and organized by TV Chosun and attracted over 500 attendees of the highest-ranking Korean audience for the GWB launch. Dr. Park, a well-known futurist, GWB global advisor, chair of GWB Korea and co-chair of the Global Blockchain and AI Councils, will be hosted in Denver at the Summit.
A core focus of this year’s Global Blockchain Summit is on diversity, equality and women in blockchain, complementing what seems to be the foremost trend of women’s empowerment in the world. Carolina Abenante, Founder of NYIAX, Pamela Norton, Founder and CEO of Borsetta, Youngsook Park, Co-Chair of the Global ICO Association and Emily, CMO of ShapeShift AG are among the prominent women that will take the stage.
