Last week we celebrated our third annual Blockchain Conference in RBS Edinburgh Gogarburn. ScotChain18 tackled challenging real issues of Blockchain innovation and how real value can be created with this transformational foundation technology.

With speakers from the UK, EU, US and Australia we had a tremendous range of views, thought leadership and networking for our audience of nearly 250. ScotChain wouldn’t be possible without the amazing support of our sponsors. We are grateful of their support and look forward to working with them again in the future.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the amazing speakers who presented on Thursday – without whom the event would not be possible.

The range of topics the speakers explored gave us great insight into how Blockchain works, the benefits, the challenges and most importantly how we can adapt to using it.

Due to the hard work and dedication of our team we asked them to decide where we should make our donation of profit from the event. Thus… we are delighted to announce that we will be making a donation to Code First: Girls. Code First: Girls works with companies and men and women directly, to help increase the number of women in technology. They run a social enterprise that helps women to overcome one of the single biggest barriers to entering the tech industry – education. They tackle this problem by offering more than 6000 woman how to code for free and to date have delivered £4.2million of free coding education. If you are interested in Code First: Girls, you can read more about them here.

Team MBN are absolutely delighted with the result of ScotChain18 and are looking forward to continuing to grow the event next year!
