In the beginning…
Time for a new chapter

Building Blockchain Capability – Telling Australian stories to the world
BlockchainAPAC 1.0

How did this begin?

The genesis block.

A conference event created on a whim. Supported by a community.

Why? To bring together amazing people who recognised the opportunity that was being presented in the Blockchain sector.

That’s so 2018….

BlockchainAPAC 2.0

Where to from here?

I’ve been asked many times if I’m running the BlockchainAPAC event again in 2019.

The answer? I’m not.

I understand that answer doesn’t make sense to a lot of people. Here’s why it makes sense to me:

That conference was perfect. It was the right event, to run at that particular time. That time has now passed.

What’s happened since? Not enough. Don’t get me wrong. It seems like there is a lot happening. But it’s not enough.

Many jurisdictions globally have moved fast. Faster than we’re moving and the risk here is that we’re being left behind. I don’t want to be left behind and you shouldn’t either.

We need a mesh.

A lot of people, thinking about blockchain, telling stories about blockchain, testing blockchain, building and innovating with blockchain. With enough momentum that purpose and technological outcomes have come together.

That’s traction. It’s what our industry needs.

BlockchainAPAC was borne out of that hope. The origin event brought people together So, where to from here? I want people involved. I want you involved.

Involved in conversation.
Involved in events.
Involved in back room discussions.
Involved in auditoriums.
Involved in classrooms.
Involved. Full stop.

Let’s do that. Let’s move this conversation forward.

Faster. So much faster.

It’s time. BlockchainAPAC 2.0 starts here.
