Description

In collaboration with DATAVLT, we bring to you "Startup Guide to Blockchain". The 101 Guide to Blockchain!

What is blockchain technology, what are its uses, how does it work?

These are only a sampling of commonly asked questions in recent times, spurred by the rise of Bitcoin, Ether (Ethereum) and other cryptocurrencies as an additional option for financing. While the popularity of these blockchain-enabled currencies is on the rise, it’s more important to understand its underlying technology, why it matters to small businesses, what governments and regulatory bodies are doing about it and how you can stay on top of developments in this sector as they unfold.

The session will focus on the fundamentals of Blockchain technology, demystify concepts surrounding our decentralized future and unpack the ideas while facilitating understanding about what the most important opportunities are in and around this new technology.
