On 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.
GBA, along with a cadre of blockchain associations, 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.

Be Introduced to the history and underlying drivers of bitcoin and blockchain technology.
Discuss why cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies are important.

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.
