Network & Learn – Intro to Blockchain Technologies
April 25, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Join Station 2 Innovation for a brief non-technical introduction about blockchain technology for those who are new to the subject. Educate yourself on blockchain technology now, you can bet your competitors are! Blockchain technology, in which a peer-to-peer distributed network is used to validate transactions and records, will have profound implications around legal documents and transactions. This primer on blockchain implementation is for people who are interested in how to use blockchain technology or for blockchain enthusiasts who like to understand more about the use cases for blockchain technologies. Nasser Hanif’s specialty is real estate/property management and how blockchain is responsible for innovation in the real estate industry.
Vendors active around blockchain include Microsoft, IBM, and niche blockchain suppliers all say they’re fielding calls from virtually all industries. In addition to financial services and legal industries, others include insurance, utilities, public sector, advertising, healthcare, auditing, supply chain, and manufacturing. This Meetup will contain an overview of some of the use cases of blockchain technology including current pilot projects. The objective is to go from the abstract concept of blockchain into concrete real-life examples that are relevant to the audience. Potential use cases are a favorite topic in these talks where every conversation yields a new use for the technology.
Wrap up the session with Q&A and an open conversation, and networking for those who stay afterwards.
