About the Event
Blockchain technology. What is this new technology and why should you care?
Just as the Internet has changed how we interact with others in our work and personal communities, Blockchain will affect many aspects of our lives such as:
-how we own property
-how our driver's licenses are stored in DMV
-how our important documents and contracts are kept
-how food is traced from farm to market
-how healthcare records are managed
-how intelligent communities will be built as close as Reno.
Blockchain may affect all aspects of our lives, and not many regulations currently provide oversight of this emerging business. If you are alarmed by the intrusiveness of Google and Facebook today which was not imagined by anyone only 10-15 years ago, you will want to learn about Blockchain technology, how laws passed by the Nevada Legislative influence this industry and how companies like Blockchain LLC are developing strategies to embed themselves in our daily activities.
Elisa Cafferata, Principal of Cafferata & Corp Inc, will show videos on the basics of this technology and examples of how this technology will be used. She will explain the new laws passed by the Nevada legislature related to this industry, and have Blockchain LLC tell us what they are doing in Northern Nevada. Elisa will be joined by Senator Kieckhefer (invited) who sponsored the legislative bills and Matthew Digesti, who is the Vice President of Government Affairs and Strategic Initiatives
of Blockchain LLC.
