Blockchain? What is Blockchain? Why Do I Care?
In this session, attendees will learn the basics of Blockchain, its current uses and security features. As digital transformation continues, current methods for handling transactions, contracts, records, and other data are not keeping up. Blockchain may be the key to modernizing and protecting transactions. It provides an open, distributed ledger updateable only by consensus of involved parties. Efficiently storing transactions in a way that can be verified makes Blockchain attractive anywhere that data and value are in motion. Blockchain is most commonly thought of as the mechanism enabling digital currencies; but, its most useful place may be securing IoT input, supply chain, medical records, contracts, transactions, and data transmissions.
