Nice to be here.
Following a nice seminar about “Blockchain in Practice”.
“Why do we organise this seminar on blockchain technology ?
The technology that is most likely going to spur the most business disruption in the next decade is not social media, not big data, not the cloud, not artificial intelligence and not even machine learning. It is blockchain, the technology behind digital currencies like bitcoin, and behind global, decentralized, secure solutions for doing trusted transactions – not only money transfers, but any asset.
Blockchain technology is complex, but the idea is simple. Essentially, blockchain is a huge global distributed but shared ledger (database), running on millions of devices and open to anyone. Anything of value – money, music, houses, deeds, art, intellectual property, scientific discoveries, and even votes and identity information – can be stored, processed and transferred securely and privately.
In other words, blockchain is the first native digital medium for value, ownership and trust, just as the Internet was the first native digital medium for information and communication. Believe me, blockchain technology could have huge implications for business, government and the society. Blockchain technology may dramatically drop transaction costs for transferring all sorts of assets, while making these transactions much faster and more secure. While the first applications were in the financial services industry, there are now applications in many more industries. During this seminar, we’ll show you how to prototype on the leading blockchain platform ethereum, and how to write distributed applications (DApps) and smart contracts, small applications that automate and support value transactions on the blockchain.
Blockchain is also ideal for both managing and maintaining digital identities, and will give a boost to the Internet of Things, one of the accelerators of Digital Transformation. The possibilities of blockchain technology are only as limited as our imagination. Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology will continue to grow in importance in our agile, global, digitally transformed and highly connected world. Be prepared by attending this in-depth seminar.”
