On Saturday, April 13th, CNC Blockchain and Blockchain in Transportation Alliance (BiTA) will be co-hosting a fireside chat on the benefits of blockchain technology in the supply chain industry. The event will take place at Venture X in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida from 10:00 – 12:30 PM. Admission is free, but space is limited so you must RSVP beforehand at: BiTA Fireside Chat.
One of the featured speakers at the event is Chris Tyler, an embedded solutions evangelist from IBM who has presented around the world on the most important technologies of the present day including blockchains, internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence and machine learning. Since launching the IBM Blockchain in March of 2017, IBM has been established as one of the leading major tech companies to see the potential of blockchains to improve security, control, ease-of-use, trust and efficiency for businesses in countless industries.
With IBM recently launching TradeLens – an open, blockchain-powered platform for global trade – there are lots of new opportunities for IBM customers to get started with their own blockchain initiatives. Chris will be able to share his unique insights on this space, focusing on how improved transparency and traceability in supply chains can ultimately transform trade and boost the entire global economy.
Another industry leader who will be participating in the fireside chat is J.W. Taylor, a founding member of Taylor & Associates, Attorneys At Law. He represents transportation and logistics companies across the nation and internationally in all legal aspects of their businesses, helping them to achieve compliance with federal and state regulations while also reducing risk exposure across the supply chain.
Due to the complexity of blockchain technology and a general lack of public understanding about what blockchains do and what they are useful for, many businesses have been weary of getting involved in this space. In reality, blockchains can be extremely useful for mitigating risk due to properties such as immutability and robustness, and Mr. Taylor will address the benefits companies can realize by integrating blockchain tech into their supply chains.
Rounding out the group of speakers at the fireside chat will be John P. Riley III, the founder and CEO of C-N-C Blockchain Advisory. John has 17+ years of experience in software applications, having previously worked for Oracle and SAP before moving into the blockchain industry full-time.
Since founding CNC Blockchain, John has been consulting organizations to advise them on software implementations, business process changes, digital transformation initiatives and end-user adoption training.
John has become a prominent figure at blockchain and other tech conferences around the world, sharing his expertise on the significant challenges that currently exist in spreading adoption of blockchain technology. He’s discussed the promising possibilities of combining blockchains with other emerging technologies such as AI and IoT, and how those innovations can complement each other.

This local event will provide an opportunity to learn about the transformative potential of blockchain technology in supply chain and to talk directly with industry leaders who specialize in helping businesses become early adopters. To reserve your seat at the event and get your business started towards blockchain integration, RSVP at BiTA Fireside Chat.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Blockchain conglomerate GDA Group joins as Campden Wealth’s newest Corporate Partner for 2021. Based in Toronto, GDA group provides access to all verticals of the crypto capital markets to institutions and private investors. The two institutions once operated on different verticals, so the partnership indicates a new era of portfolio allocation and asset diversification.

GDA Group provides multiple avenues for digital asset exposure, including trading services through their institutional trading desk Secure Digital Markets, including non-recourse lending up to $100M through GDA Lending, and private placements through their capital markets arm GDA Capital.
“Institutions have spent a decade on the sidelines, evaluating the risks of this burgeoning sector. Now, in less than 6 months we have seen billions in institutional and private capital enter the space,” says James Godfrey, FX and International Banking Advisor to GDA Group. “Our relationship with Campden will illustrate the maturation of this industry and where we are headed next.

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
