Recently, Matt Wolf opened Dandelion's Chicago office and is focused on not just their traditional service areas, but on bringing blockchain solutions to the impact space. Currently, he is working on a blockchain solution for the Cook County Land Bank as well as a replacement for COPA.
At the inaugural meeting of BSGC, Matt will be discussing Dandelion's exploration of the blockchain space, giving some background to his current work in Chicago and making the case for blockchain adoption in the GovTech sphere.
