About this Event

Are you wondering about the future of blockchain? Are you interested in how you could get into the emerging technology industry, like blockchain and cybersecurity?

The future of work is defined by two elements. Firstly, there is increasing globalisation resulting in the gig-economy, which may result in many freelancers not being paid in an accountable, inclusive and trusted manner. Secondly, automation will inevitably result in the many professions being wiped out, and many workers will be displaced. Against this backdrop, how can we use blockchain technology to design a better future of work?



On 16th June, we will have a series of events alongside our hackathon to answer these questions.

We will be have VIP speeches and 3 insightful panels with industry veterans and experts. Here is a detailed breakdown of the event.
