Exploring the Blockchain Promise in Palm SpringsOctober 29, 2018
More than a dozen Smith Soc members trekked to Palm Springs, California, for a weekend of discussion with scholar and investor George Gilder on the disruptive potential of blockchain technology. Participants explored how blockchain and cryptocurrency could transform finance, law, government, energy, shipping, and more by radically increasing security and eliminating the need for centralized authorities. There was even room for a field trip to the top of San Jacinto Peak, overlooking Coachella Valley!
Smith Soc Treks are a series of destination-based, weekend-long retreats—allowing members to explore particular topics of interest and to create deeper connections with business leaders and scholars. Stay tuned for highlights from our trek to Denver next month.
