“Be A Voice, Not An Echo.”

social good

On August 24th and 25th crypto enthusiasts from all across Chicago and the world gathered at Navy Pier to experience the “Voice of Blockchain.” The Chicago Blockchain Project brought together Leaders, Voices, and Builders of all kinds for exhibits, speakers and more. The event was split into four tracks innovation, social good, fintech, and buidl so attendees could focus on what they value. There were three stages for speakers and panels on a range of topics centered around blockchain and cryptocurrency. If you missed the event, you can check out our very own Hannah Rosenberg moderating the Solving Scalability panel below.

At the heart of Voice of Blockchain was Lamboland, a creative lounge for Youtubers, bloggers and podcasters. This is where our team set up camp for the event. You can see our interviews with the many “Voices” that make up this space below.

Away from the noise of speakers and networking the Buidl Academy was a space for developers to get certifications that are held on a blockchain and could even be integrated with your LinkedIn.

Voice of Blockchain focused on education, diversity and creating high-quality content for our community, not hype or speculation.
