Blockchain and the Transformation of Trust

Thursday, September 27, 2018

North City Tech Meetup, Monday, October 1, 2018, 7:00pm to 9:00pm.


Speaker: James Pauley, Jr.

Blockchain technology has been driving a growing investment and startup frenzy over the past three years. This was highlighted recently with the exponential growth and volatility in valuation of the currencies and tokens based upon blockchain protocols.

This talk will introduce the concept of a blockchain and why solutions based upon this evolving technology are positioned to become as revolutionary for management of value exchange and trust transactions on the internet as HTML was for information exchange.
