Last Week on Blockleaders

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This week saw the emerging themes of community and interconnectivity, focusing on bringing people together through the blockchain.

We started the week talking about using blockchain as a force for change and ended up covering the fascinating world of art and how blockchain can play a huge role in it. Throughout our journey, we also covered artificial intelligence, decentralization, giving people true access to their DNA results, and we covered the world of wealth and digital assets management.
