Thursday night, DeFiner sponsored a gathering of Minnesotan blockchain professionals in finance, media, education, charity, politics, and more.
Blockchain touches on so many industries, each able to learn from one another. So the Minnesota Blockchain Initiative hosted their event “Smart Contacts" to bring these various professionals into one space.
This includes us at DeFiner, founded in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2018. In fact, we were one of the night's sponsors.
DeFiner content creator Brandon Ferdig was on hand—with DeFiner brochure in hand.
Other Minnesota crypto companies Alkemi Network and Mandala Exchange were sponsors. As were investment and capital firms. But most notable, perhaps, was the political angle.
Minnesota Congressman Tom Emmer is one of the top-ranking politicians on financial committees and is a huge supporter of blockchain and crypto.
"We've got to make sure to get out of the way,” he said about the government interfering with blockchain industry development.
He added that the best way to do this was to “define the regulatory environment so you can grow."
After opening speakers, experts led breakout sessions about taxes in crypto, financial markets today, cyber security, and more.
The guys from Alkemi Network lead one of the breakout events.
Because blockchain touches on so many areas, the opportunities for education, collaboration, and community are enormous—even in just one, small U.S. state.
DeFiner is proud to give back to the community we started—through the sponsorship of this event and by lifting people up through the freedom of Defi.
Thank you to the Minnesota Blockchain Initiative and the other sponsors and speakers. We hope to see all of you again at a future event!
(We also hope to see all other U.S. states—and all other countries—build their blockchain industries to lift up their people.)
