Another full house event at The Blockchain Centre

Creating a centre of gravity around a Fintech vertical is hard work. That’s why it’s so impressive what the Blockchain Melbourne team have been able to achieve over a very short period of time. They have taken what 2 years ago was thought to be a esoteric niche and built a vibrant community around their passion for the vertical.

With the hosting of first Hyperledger Melbourne meetup they have shown that Victoria has a real hunger for blockchain tech — and it’s just getting started.

On the night we heard from Matt Lucas from IBM’s Blockchain Global Enablement team about the Hyperledger project, the road ahead for it, the Blockchain trends he is observing locally and globally and the work IBM are engaged in with clients around the world. It was a insightful talk that everyone in the room really enjoyed. Most found the demo of a live app on IBM’s blockchain as a service (BaaS) to be hugely instructive as to how easy it now is to deploy a chain to production.

The Hyperledger Meetup Melbourne team have another massive event in the works already! So sign up to the meetup to ensure you don’t miss the next event.
