About this talk

Blockchain has the potential to impact the world as much as the internet did in the 1990’s and become the next big infrastructure of innovation. Blockchain is however NOT Bitcoin but simply the powerful technology Cryptocurrencies use, similar to how email uses the internet. As the technology continues to evolve and being nearly impossible to tamper with, we are seeing more and more companies across a variety of industries and sectors using the technology to enable the real-time transmission of information and data. In this video, Gregg Guerin will discuss the essence of the Blockchain, a few dynamic applications of the technology, and some of the major players driving the advancement of the Blockchain in the real world.
