This Friday some of the most interesting blockchain startup founders and experts will be explaining how they think the new technology could change the world for the better.

It’s called the Blockchain for Social Impact Conference and will be held this Friday at the Microsoft Technology Center in Times Square.

I, Tyler Woods, will be moderating one of the panel discussions on how the blockchain will impact the future of healthcare, which will feature Kenneth Ng, of Hashed HealthDiego Espinosa, the founder of Healthcoin, and Raj Sharma, the CEO of Health Wizz.

Also at the conference will be several interesting companies we’ve written about recently, including GRID+, which just raised more than $30 million to build a more efficient electric utility on the blockchain, and Civil, which plans to bring the blockchain to journalism.
