A blockchain is a database that is shared across a network of computers. Once a record has been added to the chain it is very difficult to change. To ensure all the copies of the database are the same, the network makes constant checks. We’ll share with you the presentation we recently did with investors/policy makers in our 2019 roadshow in how we’ve been talking about blockchain with them.

Learn about the Cascadia Blockchain Council, who/why/how/what/where. We recently completed our 2019 Impact summary, so we will share what we did in 2019, as well as plans for 2020. In particular, we will share what companies in the Cascadia (Pacific Northwest) are doing when it comes to blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

We recently announced a partnership with Canada in a blockchain accelerator. (Press release here). We are working on an industry council focused on supply chain. We also recently finished a roadshow in 2019 educating policy makers and investors and can share with you what we learned about their perspectives when it comes to this space. Happy to answer any questions and please come with your brains!
