There is opportunity all around us, but the distinguishing factor between those who are successful and those who are not is usually not how smart, intuitive or lucky they are. Successful people tend to have the tenacity to put themselves in uncomfortable situations more than others and it is through these scenarios in which they gain the most growth impactful connections. They gain a great understanding of how other people think, predict changes in behaviour and use this knowledge to cause an impact.
With blockchain continuing to gain traction, adoption and implementation through companies such as IBM, Walmart and are only the beginning. Those anticipating the impact of the blockchain will redefine and shape many aspects of society as they discuss these ideas in their own industries, professional networks and seminars. It’s not a matter of if anymore, but rather when blockchain will become a part of everyday life. And whether you belong in the finance, healthcare, educational or any other sector, the value you bring can help project the technology forward.
With the usage of technology continuing to expand exponentially, we have seen a major transition from it being a minor convenience to something we are reliant on for our everyday lives. Specifically, with blockchain, the new technology bridges the gap between different industries, increases efficiency and accelerates the process of human development. Regardless of what field you belong in, the advancement of your industry will no doubt be influenced through blockchain technology.
Understanding the technology itself doesn’t require too much emphasis on the technicalities, but recognizing relevant use cases will give you an edge in your professional career as well as the opportunity to solve current problems in your respective field.
Blockchain events are currently being held in many locations around major cities worldwide and each has something unique to offer. Blockchain week in San Francisco this year had major guest speakers, educational seminars, career fairs and afterparties that were brimming with some of the world’s brightest and inspiring minds. It was a great place to network and learn, with an environment of friendly people that are excited about what’s to come and always willing to share their knowledge. Conventions like these often happen in larger cities and is always a great opportunity to expose yourself to the field.
For those who have had a large amount of professional experience, blockchain is an industry thriving with individuals from all different disciplines. The collaboration between professionals in blockchain who had backgrounds in cell biology, neuroscience and supply chain is prevalent. The different backgrounds bring forward a plethora of new perspectives to overcome challenges as well as a friendly atmosphere in which no one should feel intimidated and everyone can add value.
In addition to blockchain conferences and seminars, many people are taking the initiative to implement new projects and modern-day solutions utilizing blockchain.
Meetups circulating blockchain technology has become incredibly popular and are easy to locate regardless of if you’re near a major city or not. Partnerships between universities and local startup grind projects have flourished in the past few years, combining industry expertise with the ambition of the younger generation.
While the younger generation gains the opportunity to network with professionals and gain valuable knowledge outside of the classroom, they also get the chance to work for hands on with a project with their accumulated knowledge from the university.
For those wishing to gain some hands-on experience with the technology, projects such as Hyperledger and apps like meetup make finding local projects utilizing blockchain technology simple and straightforward.
