Bitcoin. Blockchain. Altcoin. Tokens. They’re all part of the crypto revolution. Cryptocurrency has gone from being obscure to mocked to revered by many. It has been lauded as a solution to all of the world’s problems and also dismissed as nothing but a glorified excel spreadsheet or even an elaborate scam. But none of that answers the underlying question: What is blockchain technology and why are people getting so excited about it?
From early adopters to those who are just now getting curious, what unites many in turning to blockchain technology are growing concerns over the power that global corporations wield, increasing infringements on freedoms and privacy, political instability, and inequality. Blockchain technology could impact every facet of our lives and offers solutions for many of these growing issues that are a result of the existing power structures in our world, from money to software to governments.
Join some of the leading thinkers in the blockchain space for a deep dive into the virtues of crypto assets and blockchain technology to learn how they can transform society and benefit us all.
