Hope you had a lovely long weekend and are enjoying the summery weather sweeping the country!
The last month has seen a number of interesting developments in the blockchain space, including:
- research from PwC showing that blockchain technology will add
$1.7T to the global economy over the next decade,
- a blockchain-based currency being developed in NZ, and
- PayPal becoming the latest big corporation to integrate cryptocurrency products and services.
Details on these stories and more below.
The events calendar for the next few weeks is also jam packed with in-person and online events around the country – so make sure you check out what’s happening near you.
Behind the scenes here, BlockChainNZ has been busy progressing the various ‘passion projects’ that Viktoriya outlined in the last newsletter, including access to banking services, digital identity and DAOs. As always, if you are interested in getting involved, please drop us a line!
We would also like to welcome John Mackie of MeterMe, who has joined the Committee to fill a seat that was vacant after our AGM. John brings a wealth of governance experience, as well as personal and professional interest in blockchain technologies.
Nga mihi nui,
Janine Granger on behalf of the team at BlockChainNZ
