Downtown Luncheon:  Blockchain Discussion featuring Bryant Nielson

Event Description

The technology most likely to change the next decade of financial services is not the social web, big data, the cloud, robotics, or even artificial intelligence. It's the blockchain, the technology behind digital currencies like Bitcoin.

Blockchain technology is complex, but the idea is simple. At its most basic, blockchain is a vast, global distributed ledger or database running on millions of devices and open to anyone, where not just information but anything of value - money, titles, deeds, music, art, scientific discoveries, intellectual property, and even votes - can be moved and stored securely and privately. 

On the blockchain, trust is established, not by powerful intermediaries like banks, governments and technology companies, but through mass collaboration and clever code. Blockchains ensure integrity and trust between strangers, by making it difficult to cheat.

We are fortunate to have a leading expert on blockchain as our presenter.

Bryant Nielson is the Founder and Executive Director of The Blockchain Academy. The Blockchain Academy offers both live and online video based programs, delivered byindustry experts, on the role of blockchain, its impact on central banks, financial institutions, trade finance, settlement, smart contracts, IP as well as blockchain developer education. Bryant has written extensively about Blockchain and is a regular speaker at blockchain conferences globally. He has delivered talks at numerous conferences in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, London, Mexico City and Dubai. He currently delivers courses on Blockchain Essentials as well as Blockchain for Lawyers. He is also the host of a blockchain podcast: Blockchain360.
