Blockchain Island is a community initiative to bring together all the constituents of the blockchain industry looking to develop jobs and bring in new companies and investors to Puerto Rico. Blockchain Island founder Michael Terpin moved to San Juan in early 2016 and runs his global blockchain PR and advisory firm, Transform Group, from Miramar. He also created CoinAgenda Caribbean, an annual blockchain event highlighting innovation and opportunity in the digital asset and blockchain sector in the region.
Blockchain Island will be held four times a year and its purpose is to bring together people in Puerto Rico already working in the blockchain sector, educate new constituents and grow the opportunity base to turn Puerto Rico into a global destination for blockchain entrepreneurs. What Silicon Valley did to transform the Bay Area, we want Blockchain Island to do for Puerto Rico!
