About

Blockchain is going to have an impact on your business and your life. It has already started and it's going to be a tech revolution like the internet. It will change the way we pay. It will change the way entrepreneurs and innovators invest in businesses, like ICO vs IPO. The fundamental rise in the value of bitcoin over the last few months shows the disruptive power of Blockchain-based financial technology.
But it is going to do more than that. Blockchain will facilitate the digitization of recordkeeping processes in a decentralized ledger. This will revolutionize many aspects of business, not just the financial sector. Blockchain technology can be used to verify information and to create “Smart Contracts”, “Smart package deliveries”, “Smart transactions” and “Smart Identities”.

The Blockchain will be everywhere, and you need to hear all about it from the world's best experts.
