After great success with last year’s inaugural event, the Georgia Blockchain Coalition has announced the return of Atlanta Blockchain Week, September 20-28. The multi-event, week-long series will showcase blockchain companies, community organizations, and startups, and highlight the latest research in the world of cryptocurrency.
Over 8,000 attendees are expected to attend the dozen-plus curated events over the week. Events will cover topics surrounding development, enterprise, startups, gaming, education and community aspects of blockchain technology. And, to get into the spirit, the conference organizers have enabled attendees to pay for their event tickets with cryptocurrency!
