In the past several years, Blockchain Technology has moved from something that – if spoken of at all – was relegated to conversations about bitcoin. Now, Blockchain is a dominant conversation topic, not only around finance, but as it relates to the arts, music business, real estate, and many other sectors.<
The reasons for this increased level of discourse are many, but relate to three key components of Blockchain Technology:
- It is a distributed ledger
- Because of the distributed nature of the ledger, it is immutable, and accessible to all
- A core component of Blockchain technology is the concept of Smart Contracts, which allow for transactions to occur at scale and without intermediaries
Still, confusion around the plausibility and relevance of Blockchain Technology remain; with some viewing it as a panacea and others viewing it as without merit.
Over the past year, I have authored dozens of articles on Blockchain Technology, conducted dozens of interviews with key thought leaders in the Blockchain Tech space, spoken at dozens of events on Blockchain Tech, and consulted with numerous companies and entrepreneurs in this space.
This session will consolidate my findings and offer recommendations with respect to the future of Blockchain Tech, how to benefit from it, and how to separate the hype from the actual promise.
