“MBN Solutions are delighted that Charles Hoskinson is keen to speak at the Scottish Blockchain Meetup again following the success of his first appearance in July 2017.  It is a great endorsement for the Tech Community and Blockchain in Scotland that someone of the calibre of Charles is visiting again and bears testament to the success of the group that we can attract internationally respected figures like Charles when they are in town. 

Scotland has long been a centre for innovation and is establishing itself as a powerhouse in Blockchain technology.  Great strides were made in Blockchain during 2017, the University of Edinburgh’s School of Informatics opened the doors to its Blockchain Technology Laboratory, one of the world’s first centres of its kind. From startups to large corporates, more investment and resources are being put into Blockchain research and innovation than ever before.

MBN have been organising the Scottish Blockchain Meetup since December 2016  and have seen interest in this field rapidly increase during this time with now over 1300 members and growing.”
