"Blockchain" is a technology that underpins Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

The goal of BlockChainJam2019 is to spread awareness on blockchain technology
to the "aspiring talents shaping the future of tomorrow"
by providing them with an opportunity to learn widely and deeply about the technology

The conference will be held

their unique perspectives on important topics
such as the latest technological developments
and business applications in this space.

With a focus on more academic aspects of blockchain technology,
this year's conference will be divided into 2 sections: "Engineers Section",
which is designed for engineers involved in the research and development on blockchain technology,
and "Business Developers Section",
which is dedicated to business developers
looking for new businesses opportunities around the technology.

The agenda will also include the one

In addition, there will be a fireside chat session
where you will have the chance to interact more directly with the speakers.
