Blockchain Community Development: Expert Panel September 1, 2020. 12pm est
On September 1st, BlockDriven Academy will be hosted another focused, informative, and engaging Live Session discussing blockchain careers. This time, the focus is on Community Development, and how you can ride the blockchain wave with a strong community or enter blockchain space as community builder for startup or an established company venturing into blockchain.
While it certainly is important for all businesses to have a positive community backing, it is uniquely crucial to blockchain companies, due to positive community relations being a constant feature that divides long-term success from short-term hype. As we’ve seen with successful cryptocurrencies, a community that is engaged and driven to help the company is blockchain’s “secret sauce.”
