The Coronavirus Threatened the Blockchain Conference, So He is Taking it Online
Alexander Pfeiffer is a Post-Doctorate Fellow at MIT in lockdown in Europe, working remotely.
He has been planning an event, Media Arts and Design | Blockchain Conference 2020, scheduled for May 2-3, 2020 at Drexel University. Now, because of the coronavirus, the event is going to be held by Zoom and the registration is free. This is a great opportunity to learn more about blockchain.

There are many ways blockchain technology can answer problems posed by Covid-19 and Alexander describes specific use cases and applications using the Ardor blockchain platform. He will be publishing an article through MIT on this topic soon.
While in lockdown, Alexander is confident he can do 100% of his work across 3-5 countries because of his set up and familiarity of decentralized systems. He is helping others get set up with technology and offering practical help to elderly neighbors in his community.
He spends his days with his wife Stella, who applies her artistic skills to baking and we show off the photos of her creations on her Facebook page.
