Blockchain gets traction in Australia’s university
In the few weeks since the announcement, active blockchain communities and events such as RegHack DownUnder have launched across the country, supported by universities and government regulators.
“We’re excited blockchain [technology] can finally move to our campus and Australia in a big way.
In advance of the hackathon, Adam Lemmon, a blockchain expert from Toronto, flew down to Melbourne to present an overview of Ethereum development and Solidity to the community.
We now have 100+ blockchain enthusiasts, that I expect [will grow] to over 1000+ by the end of the year.
Getting the entire community on board from universities to business executives to government regulators is an important milestone for any community striving to become a blockchain hub.
