Blockchain for Dummies
January 24 @ 18 h 30 min - 20 h 00 minFree
The blockchain is all the rage these days. Since cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and others started growing by several thousand percents in a year, a lot of people are looking into them. But in the same way as emails were only the first killer app of the Internet, crypto-currencies are only the first demonstration of what the blockchain can do as a software architecture. In this presentation, we will explore when and why the blockchain came to be, how it helps create corruption-free, indestructible and resilient applications far beyond currencies, and what are its most interesting prospective use cases. You shouldn’t need any technical background to understand these concepts, and at the end, you should get an even more profound understanding of what smart contracts and decentralised applications are and how they can completely change the way we collaborate and govern our societies.
