SF Blockchain Week: The Ultimate Guide

Featuring Bill Clinton, Vitalik Buterin, Naval Ravikant, Michael Arrington, Sam Lessin & Arianna Simpson

SF Blockchain Week kicks off today, Monday, October 1 in San Francisco, with a keynote from U.S. President Bill Clinton at Swell 2018, and concludes Friday, October 12, at the NonFungible Summit co-sponsored by Blockchain Gamer, a day focused on the design, use, applications and potential of nonfungible tokens for the Ethereum developer community.

Yes, SF Blockchain Week actually runs two weeks because one week is just not enough for this epic cryptotown.
