Kaelin: “Looking at Blockchain”
Radius Data Systems, a geo-spatial data analytics firm, is looking at how blockchain tech can streamline their business model going forward in what speaks to the blocktech trend that’s hitting the tech world in general right now.
The fit has to be right, as RDS’ Chris Kaelin explained to us at TNABC:
“Where this applies to blockchain is, like any other industry, we are looking at blockchain technologies to possibly re-engineer or improve the existing systems and existing fields, such as the geo-spatial field. What we found so far is that there is a considerable amount of projects and technologies out there that try to kind of wedge it in, and that’s kind of where we become a little hesitant because it has to make sense.”

Growth of the North American Bitcoin Conference
The North American Bitcoin Conference (TNABC) is regarded as the original major Bitcoin event in the USA, and possibly the world. Held annually in Miami every January since 2013, it staked that city’s claim as Bitcoin’s fun and business capital — growing from a few hundred bitcoin enthusiasts into a gathering of thousands, including several high-profile industry leaders. It’s a must-attend event on the blockchain calendar.
Produced by Dr. Moe Levin’s Keynote Events team, it now covers all disruptive blockchain technology issues — including smart contracts, ICOs, fintech, regulation and investment. TNABC also has international sister events, such as World Blockchain Forum in London.
