    Exploring Blockchain

    What is blockchain? Blockchain is a way of keeping records - known as blocks - that are linked using cryptography. Blocks contain data and link to other blocks. This new technology is expected to have applications in supply chain management, property registries and methods of storing, establishing and sharing identity digitally.

    This two-hour webinar on August 1 (9:30-11:30 a.m.) will take a look at the economic, business and social implications of blockchain technology. 

    Blockchain technology is the underlying architecture for current cryptocurrencies. Blocks store secure data and link to one another, forming a secure chain.

    During this webinar, you will learn:
    --Blockchain functionality at a practical level
    --How crypotcurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum and BitShares enable one to store and transfer value digitally
    --What the potential is for blockchain to improve business and government operations, especially in finance, supply chain management, social media, voting mechanisms and digital identity

    Learn the conditions in which your organization will benefit from blockchain technology. Don't get left behind.
