At a time when archaeological sites are a growing flashpoint in the debate over public lands, the Bureau of Land Management blocked at least 14 staff archaeologists and other specialists, including some from Utah, from attending a major scientific conference last month, a new report says.

The Washington Post reported that BLM staffers were scheduled to attend an April 14 gathering of the Society for American Archaeology, among the world’s largest organizations of professional archaeologists, in Washington, D.C., where they were to lead a symposium titled ‘Tough Issues in Land Management Archaeology.’

EXCLUSIVE: Q&A with Matthew Spoke, Founder & CEO of AION Network

CV: I’m here with Matthew Spoke, CEO and founder of AION at EDCON 2018. Why don’t you tell me about what AION is planning to accomplish for the rest of 2018.

Matthew Spoke: So I guess two general categories, tech and non-tech. On the technical side, we just released our mainnet about two weeks ago. It went extremely well, so now it’s a matter of ramping that up, so that’s on the mining side. It’s a proof of work for hash network, so there’s a number of new nodes joining the network on a daily basis. We’re working on a couple of partnerships to kind of make sure that there’s a good amount of stability on the mainnet. We’re starting to get projects considering AION as where they might host and launch their applications and their businesses, maybe even their ICO’s. So that is the mainnet itself.
