The Future of Money, Governance, & the Law (Live & Virtual)

January 27, 2022 @ 8:00 am - January 28, 2022 @ 5:30 pm UTC-5

The Future of Money, Governance, & The Law

The Government Blockchain Association (GBA) kicks off its 2022 Conference Series with ‘The Future of Money, Governance, & the Law’, January 27-28, 2022, live in Washington DC and streamed virtually around the globe.

All governments need to understand now, more than ever, how blockchain is disrupting current authority systems. As cryptocurrency, DeFi, DAOs, smart contracts, IoT, and AI shift power from centralized authority to decentralized authority, governments that do not adapt will be left holding an empty bag. Originally held in January of 2020 at the US Capitol, The Future of Money, Governance, & The Law returns for 2 days at the National Press Club in Washington DC. This event is intended to educate policymakers, map out trajectories, and offer solutions with potential use cases.
