Blockchain & BioBuzz in Baltimore: A digital assets/crypto/web3 meetup.

This 1st meetup will be an introduction to digital assets/crypto/web3 and exploring applications in health equity and life science.

May 11, 2022 @ 5:30 PM 7:30 PM

The world of digitals assets (sometimes called crypto, web3, or blockchain-enabled technology) has been a major talking point as the industry has been growing at a parabolic rate. As infrastructure is being built and use cases are being identified, it’s very easy to feel left behind. That’s why building the community is so important.

So, whether you’re an expert, a novice, or simply someone that finds yourself with growing interest in the space, come and join us for some networking and a conversation on Web3 and the implications that it has on our future.

5:30-6:15: Networking
6:15-7:00: Discussion
7:00+ : Networking

Refreshments and pizza will be provided.

BioBuzz’s Jake Thomas will moderate an interactive intro to Web3 discussion, with a few life sciences, employment and community building case studies for discussion.
