Australian Blockchain Mission to Consensus 2017, New York

About event :

New York City is a hotbed for blockchain management innovation. From digital currencies, to payments, decentralised energy to smart contracts and cloud storage - New York City is a vital research, development and deployment market for the disruptive technology. 

Australian companies involved in blockchain technology are invited to join the Australian Blockchain Mission to Consensus 2017, New York. In partnership with the Governments of New South Wales, Victoria and Data61 the mission will profile Australia as a key player in the development of blockchain technology. The program will give you access to targeted networking events and briefings in conjunction with Consensus 2017.
