GBA will host an

Educational Seminar

Blockchain & Infrastructure

On Tuesday, August 10, the Senate voted 69-30 to approve a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill.  A reaction to this historic piece of legislation is now rippling through the blockchain community. What, exactly, will this bill do to cryptocurrency adoption, mining, and governance? At the same time, President Nayib Bukele of El Salvador has announced they will begin accepting cryptocurrency as legal tender. A clash is looming in the distance, and it’s gaining momentum.

Legislators, regulators, and administrators are faced with two brutal realities. Blockchain and cryptocurrency are racing past exiting laws and regulations at a breakneck speed. At the same time elected, and appointed officials are not sufficiently knowledgeable to craft effective legislation and regulations.

Regulating this industry is a challenging task because it strikes at the heart of economic development, national sovereignty, and global competitiveness. Blockchain traverses the balance between individual liberties and government control.

The issues related to this technology do not fall across traditional right and left boundaries, and they challenge paradigms related to the bedrock of financial systems, technology, and governance.

GBA will host a 2-Day Educational Seminar

Blockchain & Infrastructure, a 2-Day Hybrid event, will provide participants with a fundamental understanding of blockchain technology, government use cases, and the legal, regulatory, economic, and governance implications.

During this course attendees will:

  • Be Introduced to the history and underlying drivers of bitcoin and blockchain technology.
  • Discuss why cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies are important.
  • Learn a basic understanding of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
  • Explore legal and regulatory considerations.
  • Discuss blockchain use cases, benefits, and risks.

This event will also discuss the impact of blockchain and cryptocurrency on governments.

Topics will include:

  • Government vs governance, a new paradigm
  • Impact of blockchain & cryptocurrency on state and local governance
  • Impact of blockchain & cryptocurrency on national governance, and international relations

The Educational Seminar will be a blended event with both in-person and online participation. Participants can network with other in-person and online attendees via a conference networking app.
