Presentation Topics

Bitcoin
-The History of Money
An examination of money throughout history, its creation, the social contract, and its functions in society.
-What Bitcoin Did First
The innovation behind bitcoin was not a technology breakthrough, rather it was a novel use of multi-disciplinary knowledge including cryptography, game theory, and computer science.
-Bitcoin's Role Today
Today we see large institutions buying into bitcoin and fighting for their slice of the digital asset pie. TD Ameritrade and Fidelity sponsored our Voice of Blockchain showing the maturity of this new asset class.

Blockchain
-What Makes It a Blockchain
Is blockchain a disruptive technology? What is the purpose of private or permissioned blockchain systems? Is it just a database?
-Enterprise Use Cases
We will look at some of the real-world implementations of blockchain technology including an overview of how industries are innovating today.
