######## Inaugural Event on Thu, 16 Nov 2017 (7-9pm) ########

Title: Misconceptions about Smart Contracts

"Smart Contracts" were first proposed by cryptographer Nick Szabo (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Szabo) in 1996. It's "a computer protocol intended to facilitate,verify,or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract" according to Wikipedia, which has been closely associated with cryptocurrencies.

Today, the ethereum blockchain's popularity enabled the concept to be utilized in a public environment.

Yet, there is a cloud of confusion around Smart Contracts.

In this session, we will discuss the misconceptions of Smart Contracts, and provide examples to facilitate easy understanding for our audience.
