Blockchain DC 2019 – Washington, DC

January 13 - January 15

As 2019 approaches, both government and industry have an unprecedented focus on blockchain-based technologies and cryptocurrencies.

Start your year at BlockChainge DC 2019, which runs from January 13-15. Participate in discussions with blockchain experts, industry leaders, government regulators, innovators, and other professionals. Gain a better perspective on forces driving the rapidly increasing adoption of blockchain solutions and uses of cryptocurrencies and learn what can and is being done to address the challenges facing both.

This is your chance to hear from notable speakers such as:

  • Congressman Warren Davidson who has been leading efforts in Congress to bring clarity and certainty to the U.S. ICO market.  Come to hear him discuss legislation he will introduce shortly to address these issues and its prospects in the new Congress.
  • Jose Arrieta, Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Acquisition at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Having led the first Blockchain deployment in the US government to improve supply chain management in the General Services Administration (GSA), Arrieta is now leading the charge to bring blockchain technology to the government as part of Reimagine HHS.  Arrieta is known for his bold perspective on how blockchain will change the way government operates. “The federal chief information officers that disagree with this Arrieta has said. “When we get this [authority to operate], they will be irrelevant.”
  • In the wake of OFAC’s recent actions to add cryptocurrency addresses to the sanctions list, Juan Zarate, a well-respected member of the National Security community and a longtime member of Coinbase’s Board of Advisors will address the necessity of preserving transparency and financial integrity in the evolving Crypto Economy.
