This May between May 24th and May 31st sees a whole host of events happening across Ireland to celebrate Blockchain Ireland week.
Organised by Blockchain Ireland, a group comprising representatives of major companies based in Ireland such as Consensys, with semi-state bodies such as the IDA and Enterprise Ireland (ie not the Blockchain Association of Ireland), there is a full range of events happening around the country including Dublin, Cork, Galway and other smaller events and social gatherings with people across the blockchain ecosystem.
The full list of events is available at https://blockchainireland.net/blockchainirelandweek/
Highlights of the week include a hackaton hosted in Consensys in their offices in Dublin’s Ringsend, PR clinics from Wachsman PR running on multiple days, talks organised on a variety of topics by legal and crypto companies, as well as some of the more popular meetup groups such as Dublin Crypto Talks, the IDA, AIB, Mastercard, and some talks by the BlockW, a female led group which is running a number of events across the week.
The week coincides with a major international meeting organised by the National Standards Authority of Ireland which is hosting an ISO meeting which aims to set standards across the blockchain and distributed ledger industries.
We’ll be attending several of the events across the week, and we’ll publish some news next week with some coverage of the events.
