When and where is it on?
The Black Blockchain Summit 2018, is an interactive 2-day conferencing event, to be held on the 10th to 11th September 2018, at the prestigious Howard University in Washington DC, USA.
How many years has it been going?
This is our first year.
What was the inspiration to start it?
Everywhere we go across the World we also see Black people facing similar problems and challenges like no access to quality education and economic opportunities. This primarily results in a lack of upward social mobility and dysfunctional societies that are easily manipulated by negative external and internal forces; colonialism and corruption respectively. The Black Blockchain Summit seeks to highlight the root causes of this situation and discuss remedies using technology including Blockchain and Crypto-currencies.

We have aligned up great speakers and panel sessions from practitioners in the space.
The conference will be followed up with hackathons to help after the event across the World.
