Blockchain: What is it?

June 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

Blockchain: What is it? Why is it relevant? How does it work?

Blockchain is a “digital ledger” that has revolutionized how transactions of all kinds are recorded and tracked. Blockchain is, technically speaking, “digital, distributed, and decentralized.” Digital because it’s electronic-only, distributed because it is stored on devices around the world, and decentralized because additions or “blocks” are added and tracked collectively. The absence of a single, responsible entity for this ledger is Blockchain’s primary strength.

Blockchain became famous in association with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, but in fact Blockchain is an independent technology with many other potential applications. Essentially, anywhere something needs to be reliably tracked, Blockchain can be used – retail, voting, supply chains, real estate, taxes, medical records, and many more. At this event we’ll be demystifying Blockchain by talking more about what it is, how and why it came to be, and at a very high level how it works.

Join us in person at District Hall Providence.
