With conferences and events shifting online, we were excited to be part of BlockDown 2020 and immerse ourselves in a new virtual event experience for blockchain.
BlockDown felt like a glimpse of the future - a video-game-like 3D surrounding that simulates the conference environment. Set in a virtual conference hall - participants were represented by customizable avatars and could walk around, chat with other participants, visit virtual booths and sit-in on the live broadcasted panels (scroll down to watch the "Challenges for Enterprises" panel we participated in).
Pietro Grassano, Algorand's Director of Business Solutions - Europe, joined Joanna Ossinger (Bloomberg), Peter Demeo (IBM) and Alex Batlin (Trustology) - all who shared unique insights and perspectives around industry adoption of blockchain technology.
The in-depth discussion includes:
- How blockchain can help enterprises going forward.
- The importance of using solutions that are scalable, decentralized & secure.
- How Covid-19 is affecting the space and much more.
With on-site events and conferences moving to virtual, we at Algorand are making a strong push to create live, engaging online content, that is accessible to all.
In addition to BlockDown, some recent virtual events we were involved in include:
