New Blockchain Australia Fellows
Australia has a brilliant parliamentary initiative known Parliamentary Friends where various important industries or sectors can have a bipartisan way to interact with parliament and ensure that our Federal Members and Senators are informed and can engage with constituents.
For the third year, the Parliamentary Friends of Blockchain was hosted at the Australian Parliament building. The sponsors of the Friends are the Hon Mr Ed Husic MP and Sen. Susan McDonald. It was excellent to have the Assistant Minister for Finance, Superannuation and Fintech, Sen. Jane Hume and the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, the Hon Karen Andrews MP in attendance as well.
Blockchain Australia announced a number of new Fellows at the event, and I was pleased to be in the company of blockchain giants, congratulations to all the Fellows admitted last night. I'm told the Fellow certificates will be upgraded shortly to have blockchain provenance included!
