N3xtCon at the University of Southern California
Blockchain Beach attended a N3xtcon event, in conjunction with USC Viterbi School of Engineering, on the campus of USC on Saturday, as one of our Founders was presenting. According to their Twitter account, the N3xtcon organization aims to “#Empower #Engage #Elevate Bringing together bright minds + visionaries to share ideas of innovation.”
This Blockchain Beyond event focused on many topics, but most importantly that: “The power of decentralization provided by blockchain network can fundamentally change the way business and people connect with each other. The integrity, tracking, verification and security of blockchain can be applied to wide range of techniques that can shape our future.”
Our recap is as follows:

And finally did you know that Satoshi never actually used the word “Blockchain” in the Bitcoin whitepaper (he did use “block” and “chain,” but never the word “Blockchain,” according to USC Professor Nitin Kale).
The N3xtcon team announced that they would likely be hosting a larger conference in June of this year, so we’re looking forward to seeing what they are able to accomplish with an event of greater scale.
