Event description

Description

Blockchain: it has the potential to change the way we buy and sell, interact with data and verify the authenticity of everything from property titles to organic vegetables. It combines the openness of the internet with the security of cryptography to give everyone a faster, safer way to verify key information and establish trust. This new technology will transform how data is safeguarded and used in everyday business. Come and learn what the potential implications are in your industry.

This four part series will provide an introduction to the history of blockchain, explain what blockchain is (and isn’t!) and take series-participants from novice to expert. Each presentation will be highly interactive with homework issued each week. For this reason, registrants are highly encouraged to attend each session.

These sessions are aimed at professionals who realize the value of blockchain, and how it will (not if) disrupt their industry in the near future.

April 5 - Introduction to Blockchain: The evolution of ledgers, databases and blockchain to gain and understanding of why it is so powerful.

April 12 - Delving Deeper into Blockchain: The exploration of the structure of blockchain and its many working parts.

April 19 - Blockchain and Cryptocurrency: Review of common uses of blockchain technology, with a focus on cryptocurrency.

April 26 - Blockchain's Future: Current uses and future application of blockchain and how it impacts various industries in Southern Alberta.
