Focused on connecting the tech communities across the city, BlockchainWeekend NYC brings together various blockchain events in the five boroughs for the first time this fall. The initiative brought together in partnership with New York City Development Corporation (NYCEDC) was created to be the first of its kind to open its doors and welcome all involved in the New York tech and blockchain space.
