In this January 21st Staseos article, author Connor Mahoney recaps the concept behind the first ever Catholic Crypto Conference that brought together a think tank of industry experts and Church leaders last November. Conference founder, Matt Pinto, believes blockchain heralds the coming of a sizeable technological shift that will reconfigure how business is done worldwide. With its potential for great good or great ill, Pinto stresses that Church leaders need a voice at the table while the technology is still in early stages of development. Brantley Millegan, former operations director for Ethereum Naming Service, asserts in his keynote address that global opportunities afforded by blockchain are too great for a global Church to ignore, and inevitably the Church will be using this technology – the only question is when.
