Topic: Unravelling the Blockchain
Contrary to common belief, blockchain has varying potential applications far beyond bitcoin and cryptocurrency. Blockchain is quite simply a digital, decentralized ledger that keeps a record of all transactions that take place across a peer-to-peer network. It can be used in eliminating back-office jobs and costs by utilising data patterns that had already been fed into the system. But are companies making the most out of this breakthrough?
We will be discussing:
- How can blockchain transform the way we handle data?
- What is the relevance of blockchain in the IT industry?
- What are the benefits and consequences of this technology?
