Feedback form is now closed.
With the growing amount of attention into blockchain technology and other forms of distributed ledger technology, (DLT) it's difficult not to get lost in the hype and find straight answers without having to dig through a lot of incorrect information as well as technical details one may not understand. This Birds of a Feather session hosted by Travin Keith, who has been involved in the space since 2013, aims to provide a quick overview about the technology, where it stands out, and its limitations, targeted to those without a strong technical background, though those with such a background are welcome to attend. After the short introduction, the majority of the session will be dedicated to an open Q&A and discussion about blockchain and other forms of DLT with the purpose of providing high-level information regarding the technologies, including feedback on possible use cases brought up by the audience.
