Local organization DCode42 is aiming to acquaint federal movers and shakers with the finer points of blockchain. And what better way to do that than to throw a part-panel, part-demo event?
The event – which DCode42 describes as a “demo day” on its website – will be held Dec. 12 in the National Union Building in Chinatown and will last from 9.30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $75 for private sectors attendees, and no cost for federal employees.
December’s event will feature the following panelists:
- Former Chief Financial Officer of the U.S. Treasury Dan Tangherlini, who is currently the Chief Financial Officer of California-based nonprofit, Emerson Collective.
- Sergio Rodriguera, former chair of the Department of Commerce’s subcommittee on Innovation and Financial Technology. Rodriguera is the Chief Strategy Officer at New York-based LLC The Credit Junction.
- Silvana Rodriguez, a diplomat and global partnerships advisor at the Department of State.
- Jessica Fox, a management consultant to Freddie Mac.
This isn’t the organization’s first blockchain and fintech event. Earlier this year, Dcode hosted a media panel (featuring FedScoop tech reporter and former Technical.ly D.C. lead reporter Tajha Chappellet-Lanier). And it’s not #dctech’s first push to connect regulators with blockchain, either. But the prospect of tech demonstrations in addition to panel discussions could make the event uniquely informative.
