    Should an ecosystem that touts transparency as one of the key factors of blockchain be transparent about the speaking fees/expenses paid to keynotes as well as panelists? (At least averages that could be broken down by age, race, and gender would provide insights that could help...

    What is the most valuable implementation of blockchain technology that you are aware of?

    That's no small question. I'm partial to projects bringing down the barriers and making blockchain technologies more accessible.
