Event Details


Blockchain has become big business - and big news.  In the ten years since its inception in 2008, blockchain (or its most famous implementation, BitCoin) has taken the global imagination by storm, creating millionaires and billionaires out of ordinary people.  But what exactly is blockchain?  Is it a technology, or is it a social movement?  Is it a new invention, or a new way of using old tech?  Is it a new way of looking at the world, or the latest in a string of investment bubbles that have rocked our economy to its very foundations?  Most importantly, if it isn’t going can someone get informed and involved so they can take advantage of its opportunities?  This free introductory lecture answers these questions and more, laying the groundwork and showing the way for people curious about Blockchain and interested to learn about how they might take advantage of it from the perspective of someone in Business, Investing or Technology.


  1. Introduce Blockchain and explain why it is an important technology.

  2. Show where Blockchain resolved previously “impossible” problems.

  3. Detail the technologies of Blockchain and how they work together.

  4. Point out where Blockchain has impacted our current economy.

  5. Explore where Blockchain may impact our future economy.

  6. Explain why Blockchain is also an ideological viewpoint.

  7. Answer questions people may have about Blockchain.
