2017 is the year when blockchain startups starts releasing their products and banks/finance will start using blockchain-based backends. But what are these products and services? Who will be impacted?

Jørgen who is writing a master thesis at NTNU about blockchain & trust in supply chains will start of the meetup with a 20 minute talk about blockchain to get everyone up to speed with basic concepts and current projects around the world. Then there will be a QA before we sit down to have a beer and chat.

So what is being disrupted? here are some links elaborating on blockchain in the following contextes:
