We’ve heard a lot about blockchain over the past few years – but what’s next? A blockchain is essentially a digital ledger of transactions that is duplicated and distributed across all the nodes on the network that make it impossible to change, hack, or cheat the system.
Join us for a Panel Discussion led by Lindsley Medlin to discuss “Blockchain – What’s Next?” on November 10. He will be joined by 3 other prominent leaders in the Blockchain space – Dr. W. Scott Stornetta, Jamiel Sheikh, and Barbara Muscara. They will provide a brief primer and Lindsley will then lead a discussion on how blockchain is being used today via real life examples, and how it may be used in your respective businesses.
Join your peers to gain new perspectives, share experiences, and collaborate on real-life solutions to your most pressing problems. Come away with actionable insights and build a strong professional network as you engage with old friends and make new connections at our In Person meeting on November 10th at The Madison Hotel. Networking begins at 5:30pm.
