Speaker "Waleed Awan" Details Back



The Need for Blockchain Applications


I would like to speak about the need for applications in the blockchain space that are consumer facing and accessible to the mainstream public.


Waleed Awan is the Chief Product Officer at Hellofriend, a blockchain-based platform for buying and selling social experiences and connecting people in real life. He got involved in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space in early 2016 when he started mining Ethereum from his college dorm at Harvard. He has since taken time off from Harvard to work full-time on Hellofriend and to use blockchain technology to disrupt social networking.
