Introduction

Blockchain is a collection of technologies which work together to create a distributed system which maintains an immutable ledger using cryptographic techniques, and achieves trust in a decentralized fashion, thanks to the innovative application of consensus protocols, digital signature and the special Blockchain data structures combined.

 

As one of the major applications of Blockchain, cryptocurrencies and tokens have been deployed into an abundant number of use cases. Furthermore, smart contracts have also empowered tons of financial applications and are already rapidly expanding their impacts into many other industries. Web3 applications are reshaping the world while the fundamental Blockchain technologies continuing to evolve.

 

We believe that there are a lot of works that need to be done, and it is crucial to bring the talents and like-minded practitioners of the local community together and contribute to the rapid technical development of Blockchain.

The IEEE Hong Kong Blockchain Local Group is under the IEEE Hong Kong Section. With the strong support from the Hong Kong Section as well as the IEEE Blockchain Initiative, we successfully made our debut in 2022 under the leadership of the co-founders, Simon Au Yeung and Duncan Wong, who are also our group's first co-chairs.

Blockchain Local Groups are being formed worldwide to bring together experts and provide networking opportunities for attendees working on blockchain projects. Go here to see the list of local groups all over the world!
