Black Blockchain Summit 2019 to Gather Global Blockchain Tech Leaders at 2nd Annual DC-Based Conference

Black Blockchain Summit 2019 to Gather Global Blockchain Tech Leaders at 2nd Annual DC-Based Conference
WASHINGTON, DC August 13, 2019, BillMari , the leading pan-African blockchain company, in partnership with BitHub Africa will host its 2 nd Annual Black Blockchain Summit (BBS) from September 9 th -10 th in Washington, D.C. on the historic Howard University campus .
The theme for this year’s Summit is “ Reparations and Revolutions. ” The theme marks a crossroads of the global Black community to remediate the past while claiming a stake in a better economic future. Ten years after the release of the Bitcoin White Paper, black cryptocurrency and blockchain innovators are gathering at BBS to examine how blockchain can repair injustices, and revolutionize the globe into a more equitable society.
What is Blockchain?
Blockchain launched with the appearance of Bitcoin as a white paper (technical plan) on October 31, 2008, and later as a working protocol for the transfer of the first cryptocurrency on January 10, 2009. Blockchain is an automated, computer-driven system to transfer value – be that cryptocurrency, votes, ownership deeds, or other valuable data – between peers in a secure and fast manner. Computers in a blockchain can be owned by anyone in the world who downloads and runs the software/protocols for a public blockchain. The fact that all may participate in running blockchain systems reduces corruption and provides new economic opportunities regardless of geography or economic status. Globally, individuals also may construct businesses or business services using these open-source (free-to-use) blockchain protocols.
Why Now?
The objective of the 2019 Black Blockchain Summit is to generate innovative and lasting solutions that disrupt our currently unsustainable position within emergent technologies. We seek to bring lasting prosperity and independence via blockchain solutions as envisioned by freedom fighters and liberators in the “ Arusha Declaration. ”
BBS Co-hosts explain why blockchain technology is important. “We believe that through diligent use of technology and harnessing black cultural competency, problems facing Black societies globally can be mitigated in a timely and effective manner,” BillMari Co-Founder and Black Blockchain Summit 2019 Co-Host Sinclair Skinner said.
BitHub Africa Co-Founder and Black Blockchain Summit 2019 Co-Host, John Karanja added, “This year’s Summit will inspire participants on how they can leverage Blockchain technology to address historical and current injustices by developing disruptive solutions to challenges faced by the Global Black community.”
The 2019 Black Blockchain Summit conference agenda is diverse; the speakers will discuss Blockchain technology solutions in a “baraza” (panel format), an interactive debate format using the Swahili language and debate-style, with topics covering real estate, global investments, cross-border payments, law, and the burgeoning cannabis industry among other topics.
Some of the prominent speakers at the summit are:

H.E. Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao – African Union Ambassador, Washington DC
Stacey E. Plaskett – Member of Congress US, House of Representatives
Lindsey Parker – Chief Technology Officer, DC Government
Lamar Wilson – Head of Vision and Decision, Hijro Network
Tone Vays – Content Creator, Derivatives Trader & Consultant
Lyn Ulbricht – CEO, Free Ross Ulbricht
Reggie Middleton – CEO, Veritaseum
Jeff Garzik – Co-Founder, Bloq
Isaiah Jackson – Author, Bitcoin and Black America

This interactive 2-day summit unites tech disruptors and leaders in business, engineering, development, and innovation around the globe to discuss the role of blockchain technology in building economic independence, wealth creation, liberation and the transformation of black communities throughout the diaspora.
