What we'll do

Join us for our inaugural Blockchain for Business meetup! We'll look at the fundamentals of Blockchain technology, including:

• An overview of the first blockchain - Bitcoin
• Sending, storing and signing transactions
• The problems that blockchain technology solves
• Consensus and decentralisation - why they are important in a blockchain
• What we’ve learned after almost 10 years of Bitcoin
• Where the technology is being used now
• Where the technology will be used in the future

We'll then open it up for Q&A.

The evening should provide a great starting point for anyone wishing to understand what blockchain is and how it may be relevant to them in a professional or business sense. If you're considering using the technology or just want to learn if it's something you need to be considering, this will give you a useful overview.

You'll also get the opportunity to network with other business leaders, developers and professionals who are looking to build with the technology. Ultimately, our aim is to build a vibrant enterprise blockchain community where we can collaborate, learn from and add value to everyone involved.

To be clear, this is not an investment group - we are focused solely on the technology and how it may be used in enterprise/business settings. If you're looking for speculation or 'investor' groups, there are plenty of those out there. Our focus is building.
