Even if your company isn’t using a blockchain system, or ever planning to, you could be impacted by vendors or partners who do. The key to asking the right questions is knowing what it is and what it does. But what else do you need to know? This presentation will start with a brief overview of the technology. Then, we’ll discuss the buzzwords used to describe the technology (think: secure and immutable) and how they can be misleading.

Description

 


Even if your company isn’t using a blockchain system, or ever planning to, you could be impacted by vendors or partners who do. The key to asking the right questions is knowing what it is and what it does. But what else do you need to know? This presentation will start with a brief overview of the technology. Then, we’ll discuss the buzzwords used to describe the technology (think: secure and immutable) and how they can be misleading. You’ll learn about a few recent use cases, and develop ideas on how to think critically about what blockchain is and how the technology may impact you. As a result of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • think critically about the language used to describe blockchain to separate hype from reality
  • consider what problems blockchain does and does not solve
  • understand some of the current applications under development today
Target Audience

Payment or financial professionals curious about understanding what blockchain is, and how it may affect them.
