Held in New York, Consensus is the world’s largest blockchain event. Attracting 8,500 industry participants, it is a vibrant hub for projects to show off their accomplishments and future goals. Sam Lee, CEO of Blockchain Global and Advisor of Blockshine was joined by Blockshine’s Senior Business Development Manager, Daniel Bateman to represent the two companies at Consensus 2019.
Thanks to the solid foundation Blockchain Centre has developed with the Australian government through it’s MOU with Austrade, Sam Lee had the honour of attending the event as a member of the Austrade delegation, which partially funded the trip as part of a government effort to “seize the opportunities” presented by blockchain technology.
