--Don & Alex Tapscott, authors of Blockchain Revolution
Flewid Capital is a local business building an accessible economical and efficient way for people to access and use their money regardless of geographical location.
Join Flewid's CEO and Founder Elizabeth Jose, to learn how they are using blockchain in a space where it is not required to make the system function. Elizabeth will speak about why they made the choice to use it, how Flewid makes blockchain palatable for the average person and what will happen if blockchain becomes a thing of the past or isn't embraced.
