The Ministry of National Security hosted the ‘Blockchain for Beginners’ town hall meeting this evening [May 31] and you can tune in and watch the 90-minute video below.

Speaking earlier this week, Minister of National Security Wayne Caines said, “It is no secret that this Government has made a significant impact on the world stage with our bold entry into the world of fintech.

“We have attracted the best and brightest in the blockchain sphere to Bermuda with early stage MOU’s and investments totaling over $20 million dollars. We have garnered significant international media coverage of our innovative approach to this industry – and we have led the charge for Governments the world over.

“But today, we’d like to close the circle, and connect with everyday Bermudians who may not be au fait with the power and potential of Blockchain, Fintech and the world of Digital Assets.

“Our town hall meeting is an open event that will serve as an introduction to the world of Blockchain as it relates to Bermuda and Bermudians in particular.

“We have a lineup of industry experts who aim to break down blockchain for the masses. We will explore the basics of the technology with Bermuda tech guru, Richard Augustus.

“Startup Founder and Bermuda Business Development Agency consultant, John Narraway will join the panel sharing his insights into the new technology. Glenn Simmons, a young blockchain enthusiast will share his perspective on the potential opportunities and impact of the technology for Bermuda.

“We will explore what the Digital Asset Business Act, scheduled for debate in the house on Friday June 1, will mean for the island and answer questions that the public may have. Thaao Dill of the Bermuda College, will act as our moderator for the evening.”

    Exactly how trump and the plp gained power.

    …and an uneducated electorate.

      Really after a report was found that the ubp used black surrogates to regain power and called it the Oba and they tried to cover it up. Does that not qualify as a lie? Or how bout them lying about jetgate for over a year. Or 2000 jobs. Or stopping the shootings. On and on and on we go. From the jump the Oba was a lie but you not going to point that out are you?

    That is true, but given that e-currencies are unregulated and favoured by large scale criminal organisations I am not sure that is the image we want to portray on the world stage.

      They haven’t done anything yet lmfaooooo….MOU’s mean nothing!

    • Come correct says:

      Why were there large scale criminal organizations before crypto? Why do you assume there will not be better regulation in the future?

    BUYER BEWARE:- This is a form of high tech gambling NOT investing. There’s virtually no real regulation, no transparency, no accountability, no formal audits, no “real” business plans, with a massive, unsustainable mining carbon footprint which was designed to be used in 3rd world countries where banks and Govt are completely Corrupt, UNTRUSTWORTHY and steal citizens money without consequences.

    • Come correct says:

      Yes this sounds like a totally unbiased, unemotional, fair perspective.

      Who cares about SSM? Bunch of people running around acting up, making a scene and trying to be noticed. No one wants to see that in public anyway. Your desperation shows as you all post in every thread that is on another topic some stupid comment about “what about the gays”?

      Give it a break. No one cares. Go somewhere else and take your cruise line with you! Decent God obeying people are in charge here. So endeth the lesson.

      Now let the comments begin. Enjoy wasting your time. I will pray for you at Church.
