Now for those who are wondering what this is about & why it is important, here are a few quotes from some people you might’ve heard of:

  • Im reasonably confident that the blockchain will change a great deal of financial practice and exchange. 40 years from now, Blockchain and all that followed from it will figure more prominently in that story than will bitcoin. – Larry Summers, US Former Treasury Secretary 
  • Instead of putting the taxi driver out of a job, Blockchain puts Uber out of a job and lets the taxi driver work with the customer directly. – Vitalik Buterin, Co-founder of Ethereum
  • Bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap it can be. Bitcoin is better than currency in that you dont have to be physically in the same place and, of course, for large transactions, currency can get pretty inconvenient. – Bill Gates, Founder of Microsoft

Did you know Blockchain is not just Bitcoin, but a fundamentally different way of transacting between two entities without a 3rd party.

We will be bringing together some of the best founders and VCs in the blockchain space to discuss the opportunities the space provides, ranging from Bitcoin & other cryptocurrencies, ICOs, the use of blockchain in various sectors and so much more. 

If you are an aspiring entrepreneur interested in the space, or just plain curious about how you can use blockchain in your business, this Startup Saturday is the place to be.
