Is Blockchain going to disrupt all of technology and finance? Or is that mostly just hype? This seminar will help you understand the technology underlying Blockchain and get a sense of its promise, perils and limitations. Blockchain is the underlying technology that enables cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. To its proponents, however, the Blockchain is nothing less than a radically new way to address foundational issues in technology, banking and commerce. It could enable cheaper money transfers, easier identity-verification and new modes of commerce via smart-contracts. However, much of this promise is yet to be realized-- there are many unresolved questions about its applicability in the real world. Our panel of distinguished experts will help you to better understand this technology and its uses.
