Blockchain: Navigating this Game-Changing Technology

TALK

Blockchain is is arguably the most significant technological innovation to emerge in recent years. In this talk I will provide an overview of what blockchain is and why it’s considered game-changing. This will be followed by a run down of the current state of play in the blockchain eco-system, before discussing key considerations for organisations wishing to work with this technology – based on my experience building a platform on top of Ethereum.
