2019 Miami University Blockchain Conference

About the Conference

The event was hosted on Sunday, February 17th, and was a day full of wonderful speakers with many great insights and topics relating to Blockchain. The whole event ran from 9 am to 5 pm with many guest speakers ranging from CEO's of startups, to Blockchain leads of large organizations like P&G and Deloitte, to students that have boldly pursued their passions and built their own startups. The topics and applications included; Supply Chain, Accounting, Finance, Venture Capital and Investing, Entrepreneurship, Engineering, Law, Government, and Sustainability. The event had around 100 attendees in person, and another 200 that live streamed the event through our YouTube page, where we have also posted videos from all of the talks.


Speakers said the event was very professional and up to par with other large Conferences put on by companies like Blockland Cleveland. MUBC plans to host the Second Annual Miami University Blockchain Conference next Spring. Our next big event is our Blockchain Hackathon coming up in the fall. We are always looking for sponsors!
