Blockchain is widely considered to be a once in a generation revolutionary technology because of its ability to digitise, decentralise, secure and incentivise the validation of transactions. Most people know it because of the initial use case crytocurrencies (including Bitcoin); however, it has since evolved into so much more. This widely applicable technology is set to massively impact our financial systems, digital identity, our governments, supply chain management and automation. A wide range of industries are evaluating Blockchain to determine assess whether this technology will radically impact business in the same way that the internet has. Join the EPICWestport Blockchain Hub and our panel of speakers to discuss how blockchain technology works, discover what virtual currencies, smart contracts and distributed ledgers are, how this technology will impact our lives and how we are addressing this opportunity on the West Coast.
