Blockchain is a decentralized digital ledger technology that aims to change the status-quo of current business models and the structure of transactions made around the world. While Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies represent the most popular application of the technology today, there are many possible implementations in industries known and unknown, each with a strength for its own domain. This presentation discusses the birth and evolution of the technology to present day and shines a spotlight on the coming technical revolution and the many use cases of blockchain today and in the future. Attendees will also receive a custom-made token, created by the presenter.
