AirTree Speaker Series – Developments in Blockchain

Please join us for a unique opportunity to hear from the brightest minds in blockchain to discuss recent developments in the space.

We have convened an exceptional panel from thought leaders country-wide, including:

Dr Jemma Green – Research Fellow at Curtin University and Chair and a Co-founder of, a leading full-stack energy blockchain technology company

Dr Washington Sanchez – Co-founder of OB1 and core-developer of OpenBazaar, a decentralised marketplace for goods and services that uses cryptocurrency for payments

We’ll be covering the full spectrum of blockchain companies, from a more traditional crypto-fiat exchange to a completely decentralised marketplace, to Australia’s most prominent ICO. Join us as we discuss opportunities to build companies around ‘traditional’ currencies like bitcoin and ethereum, new protocols and, of course, ICOs.
