Now in its third year, Blockchain Ireland is hosting a
week-long series of digital events to celebrate and educate
the Irish audience on Blockchain, a truly transformational
technology. This year the theme is: Blockchain: Foundation
of Trust. Blockchain is most often recognised as the
technology that underpins Bitcoin and other
cryptocurrencies.

Jillian Godsil, co-founder and
editor in chief of Blockleaders says: “I frequently speak on
a global basis on why Blockchain needs Women and I am
delighted to address this issue on home soil. While
blockchain and cryptocurrency are one of the most dynamic
and exciting industries today, there is sadly a huge dearth
of women represented in this sector. Blockchain is too
important to be left to men alone.”

The Blockchain
Ireland week runs from May 24 until May 27 and will offer
digital events across the country covering social impact and
public services, sustainability, start-ups and innovation,
enterprise, developers and more. There is an impressive
array of some X Speakers drawn from the World Economic
Forum, the European Commission, Irish government, industry,
academia, entrepreneurs, and the indigenous technology
sector.

The line of up international speakers from
Africa, Asia, Australia, and the United States will join
speakers from Ireland to speak on use cases and experiences
from craft brewing and bloodstock sales, to green energy and
agri-food traceability.

The event is organised by
Blockchain Ireland which is a non-profit organisation of
state agencies, corporates, academics, and industry
professionals, is working to share insights and expertise
and to promote blockchain technology in
Ireland.
