About this event

What does blockchain mean?

According to Forbes Magazine:

"The blockchain is the first technology that enables the transfer of digital ownership in a decentralized and trustless manner. In fact, there are companies like Polymath that are disrupting the industry by creating digital tokens that can represent ownership in a company, or DAEX, which is seeking to disrupt the world of digital art by publishing ownership on the blockchain."

But what does that really mean? And what's the deal with all of these coins? 

Confused? No worries because we are dedicating our entire August event to understanding what the blockchain is and the future of this technology used in our personal and business lives.

We are excited to partner with Blockchain 901, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating people on all things Blockchain.  Blockchain 901 will lead this informative and engaging workshop!
