U.S. Chamber of Commerce
1615 H Street NW
Washington, DC 20062

Blockchain technology has the potential to transform every industry. Healthcare, insurance, retail, agriculture, and even government could be streamlined through blockchain. In Washington, most of the conversation has centered on cryptocurrency or data security, but what about the power the technology may harness across sectors? What will the blockchain policy landscape look like? The answer is nobody knows for sure yet, but the future is now.

On August 1st, C_TEC will explore the power of blockchain and debate policy ramifications by convening leading innovators, policy leaders, thinkers, and investors. What was once a fad about Bitcoin is now mainstream. C_TEC is not just joining the conversation on blockchain—we’re leading it.

Get Smart on Blockchain is more than a regular DC policy event. Its purpose is to bring critical stakeholders together to explore the future of blockchain and America’s role in it. Get Smart is not about individual topics, but an emerging technology ecosystem.

Join us on August 1st for compelling conversations that will touch topics such as:

  • Blockchain 101
  • Crypto and fintech
  • The Farming Revolution
