Unblocking Blockchain

  • “Is blockchain right for my business?”
  • “Our buyers want to pay in crypto-currency. What do I do next?”
  • “How is blockchain going to affect us?”

If your clients are asking you questions about blockchain you need to be able to advise them. And if they’re not already asking about it, they will be soon. It’s time to get ahead.

We are hosting an invitation-only breakfast seminar and round-table event joined by other professional advisors to hear from experts and discuss the issues affecting clients.

In collaboration with UNAFRI, Maureen convened the first ever round table discussions (2016, 2017) on the policy, legal and socio-cultural implications of regulating distributed ledger technologies including cryptocurrency and the blockchain in Africa.
