BlockFiesta! is a one day conference during Albuquerque’s International Balloon Fiesta to solve some of our world’s most pressing problems. We’ll explore the near future of blockchain development and promote its use in New Mexico and the US southwest. Including sessions focusing on Energy, Civic Tech, Education and Investment, BlockFiesta will explore possibilities for meaningful use of blockchain technology.

Elevating Blockchain

We are looking for sponsors and volunteers to contribute to the 1st Annual BlockFiesta! Conference. Please register and visit our sponsorship page to learn more, and contact us if you’re interested in volunteering.

Conference Tracks

The Future of Energy

Between the presence of three federal labs, advanced development in photonics, and the presence of large stores of oil and natural gas, energy innovation is a strong theme in our ecosystem and for BlockFiesta as well.

Government & Civic Tech
Between federal presence, forward thinking city leadership in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, we will also include sessions on the themes of Blockchain use in Government and representatives from the labs.

Startups & Investment

New Mexico is already home to several startups that are either based on blockchain technology or are incorporating cryptocurrency in their funding models.

Technology Development

Blockchain in Education

And more!
