    Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies – What You Should Know

    Do you know what a blockchain is? Have you heard of Bitcoin? Ethereum? Ripple? They are no longer the stuff of science fiction. A blockchain represents an entirely new method of transacting business. It’s a global, centerless ledger that can immutably record every type of transaction from contracts and mortgages to banking, and from cargo manifests to patient heath records and food quality. Bitcoin is one of many cryptocurrencies that are generating significant value in and of themselves as currency for investments and actual purchases. The technology is new and volatile, but it is here to stay.

    This session uses clear analogies and terminology to deliver a solid understanding of the workings of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, along with their pros, cons, and techniques to stay up-to-date. It is delivered in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner, intended for people with little to no prior experience.
