San Francisco Blockchain Week Announced for October 5th to 12th


On October 5-12, San Francisco Blockchain Week looks to re-focus the
blockchain community on what really matters: the technology behind
blockchain, not the money.

The SF Blockchain community has announced the inaugural San
Francisco Blockchain Week
from October 5 to 12. San Francisco
Blockchain Week (SFBW) gathers the world's blockchain community for a
week of educational events focused on consumer adoption, technical
innovation and insight from blockchain leaders in academics and industry
who are looking to solve some of the industry's largest problems.

Throughout the week, issues such as scalability, identity, privacy,
decentralization, and future topics currently discussed in academia, but
rarely discussed in depth by the general public, will be highlighted.
SFBW strives to educate developers, consumers, and entrepreneurs on
technical topics and familiarize them with leading projects currently in
development. This week-long, immersive experience aligns projects with
the community by giving teams a platform to teach, and the community an
opportunity to learn all in one place.

"The blockchain community in San Francisco has realized that there is
too much noise and not enough substance at most events today," said
Ronen Kirsh, the event coordinator and managing partner at Dekrypt
Capital. "As a result, we created San Francisco Blockchain Week to be a
community event focused on high-quality education that engages both new
consumers as well as experienced developers."

San Francisco Blockchain Week consists of:

World Class Blockchain Conferences: San Francisco Blockchain Week
is centered around three headline events - the Ethereum
Hackathon ETHSanFrancisco
on October 5-7, San
Francisco Blockchain Week Epicenter
on October 8-9 and the Crypto
Economic Security Conference
(CESC) on October 10-11.

Education and Development: A plethora of free educational events,
developer workshops, meet-ups, and deep dives will be hosted in various
locations throughout the city. In addition, UC Berkeley will host a
blockchain academy for executives looking to learn more about blockchain

Networking: The SFBW app will notify participants of new events,
schedule meetings, host location based giveaways, and organize tickets
for various events. The week includes various Crypto Happy Hours,
BlockParties, and San Francisco Tours hosted by blockchain teams and

Community Building and Recruiting: With so many talented
community members in attendance, San Francisco Blockchain Week will host
a job fair, recruitment workshops, and community building activities for
various projects.

"San Francisco Blockchain Week is a great chance for people to learn
about and get interested in blockchain. Hosting ETHSanFrancisco here at
the start of the week will give developers a way to really dig deep into
new ideas, meet other developers and build things - all of which are key
to growing the Ethereum and blockchain community in San Francisco," said
Kartik Talwar of ETHGlobal.

San Francisco Blockchain Week is an event created by the blockchain
community, for the blockchain community.

Free tickets are available here.
