Open the Block - Blockchain Education for Everyone
Almost everyone has heard about blockchain, but do they actually know what it is? What it can do? Ask anyone on the street and they’ve probably heard of Bitcoin, but what can you do with a blockchain beyond Satoshi’s white-paper? Come and listen to three blockchain educators talk about the many different facets of the blockchain and what it actually can - and cannot - do. Go beyond the hype, FUD, and FOMO to hear the real story.
