SHOWCASE SA - South Australian Blockchain Stories & Community

As part of our SHOWCASE SA series, together with the Blockchain Innovation Challenge, this session looks at what South Australia has achieved already in community building, university education, entrepreneurial initiatives and establishing companies and projects. We hear from some of the earliest adopters and innovators in the Adelaide community, many of whom have travelled globally and been part of numerous DLT businesses and successful projects. The questions are also posed on what else is there to do in capacity building for the sector? What more can be done to strengthen the skills and what deeper investment can be made in South Australia to grow it as a capital of the blockchain industry? With $50bn+ of defence contracts, a growing engineering skills capacity as a result and winning the $12bn national space industry only late last year, can Australia become a centre for Australia’s blockchain industry and more so, can it compete on the world stage?
