Don’t just take our word for it…

Here are a selection of testimonials from attendees of last year's Blockchain West Summit + Tradeshow, held in San Francisco, California.

Lyle W. Paczkowski

““The blockchain West conference proved that Blockchain systems and ledger technologies are not only here to stay – will become increasingly important to the business community in general. The meeting offered several excellent information tracks which made deciding upon which to attend – a good problem. The meeting agenda, content, and pace was just right. The food, facilities were comfortable, and staff was excellent. There was ample time to network and visit with possible collaborators. I will make it a point to attend next year’s conference.””

—Lyle W. Paczkowski, Technology Strategy - CTO, Sprint
