Blockchain at UCLA is one of the largest blockchain student communities in the country, and draws upon faculty and students in law, business, and engineering to create comprehensive programming that educates and engages the Los Angeles community on blockchain technology. The organization focuses on research and academics in the blockchain space and produced the sold-out Cyber Days conference in Spring 2018, which made headlines in business and technology media. Blockchain at UCLA holds weekly events for students, which have previously included a Joe Lubin (founder of ConsenSys and co-founder of Ethereum) interview, industry tech talks, and both non-technical & technical educational series. The group is working on a formal curriculum for blockchain programming at UCLA Engineering and is collaborating in a stealth partnership with a large international organization on research examining the legal implications of blockchain use in the criminal justice system.  Learn more:  www.blockchainatUCLA.com
