IEEE Blockchain Initiative
Christine Miyachi (www.christinemiyachi.com) will present IEEE Blockchain Initiative and will introduce people to the Boston section of IEEE Blockchain. She’ll walk you through how to join the organization for free and get on our distribution list.
The IEEE Blockchain Initiative (BLK) is the hub for all IEEE Blockchain projects and activities. The BLK encompasses a comprehensive set of projects and activities supported by the following core subcommittees: Pre/Standards, Education, Conferences and Events, Community Development and Outreach, Publications, and Special Projects. IEEE Blockchain Boston is a local section that supports these activities with live meetups and events.
Blockchain is a new and emerging technology family positioned on the leading edge of the technology hype curve. It is not bleeding or cutting-edge technology; nor is it fully formed, standardized, or supported by best practices. The Blockchain Technical Community is highly fragmented and badly needs what the IEEE can deliver; a stabilizing think space of seasoned professionals specifically trained and positioned to make a difference. Blockchain is by far the most forward thinking, impactful, and disruptive emerging technology family that the Future Directions Committee and the IEEE has sought to embrace.
