Blockchain and Cryptocurrency
Hosted by GW & Wade
Blockchain: it’s the latest development in financial technology that many don’t fully understand. Have you heard of blockchain, but still can’t quite grasp the potential revolutionary nature of the technology? Do you want to understand the potential effect of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies on the digital economy?
At our Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Coffee Talk, hear from two of the industry's leading experts explain blockchain in simple, visual terms and dig deeper into the complexities of the technology, how it is valued, and its potential disruptive nature on the financial industry as well as on other sectors.
Here are some topics you will learn about:
- How blockchain works (and if it’s really trustworthy)
- When it works (and doesn’t work)
- The implementation of blockchain technology and the current market
- How much money is flowing into this financial ecosystem
Attend our educational event and walk away with new insight into the fast-moving world of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
Your friends and associates are welcome and encouraged to attend.
