ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Local businesspeople, government officials and more can learn about the benefits of fast-emerging blockchain technology at a conference Saturday at Central New Mexico Community College.
CNM Ingenuity, a nonprofit that manages CNM’s commercial activities, and the New Mexico Blockchain Alliance will host the one-day BlockFiesta to discuss opportunities that blockchain can offer businesses, government agencies and organizations in managing financial transactions and operations online, said Amber Terrasas, chief operating officer at FreeRange, a co-working space and Blockchain Alliance member.
“The blockchain technology is important for many industries, including everything from health care and real estate to government entities,” Terrasas said. “We want to educate everybody about its benefits.”
Blockchain is the foundational platform technology that enables use of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. In essence, it provides a secure online system to share ledgers on all transactions that can’t be changed or corrupted. It facilitates the tracking and exchange of assets, reducing risk and cutting costs for all involved.
