Innovation and Trends: Blockchain and Crypto Currency


D-Node's Cody Marx Bailey joined Mant Hawkins and Cijoy Olickal forming a world-class panel focused on trends in blockchain and crypto currency. The event took place on Wednesday, February 7th at the Network Bar, which is located just west of downtown Dallas in Trinity Groves.

The bar and restaurant area were full of people having dinner and enjoying drinks, but the room quieted down as soon as Stephen Ellis, director of the North Texas Blockchain Alliance (NTBA), began the night's discussion. The panelists did an excellent job of keeping the audiences' attention, which was impressive considering the place was packed full of beautiful people and plenty of distractions. Topics ranged from explaining the basics of the blockchain protocol, to sharing insightful predictions regarding this exciting, innovative technology. The audience had a chance to ask a few questions of their own, and the conversations carried on for hours after the formal event came to close around 9pm.
