Everybody is talking about it! Just about every major financial corporate has teams of researchers trying to understand the potential use cases that may impact their business. But what exactly is the Blockchain and how does it work?
This is a workshop with a difference. Participants are going to actually study the Blockchain by using it, initially through Bitcoin, which is where it all started. The course will then look at how the concepts can be expanded and will explore other use cases such as smart contracts. Participants will work together practically to understand the inner workings under the guidance of the workshop moderator.
All participants will be given some bitcoins to experiment with and together they will be able see how the Blockchain gets modified and how transactions are created.
By the end of the day participants will understand exactly how the Blockchain works. It is not necessary to have any technical or previous knowledge of the Blockchain or Bitcoin, everything will be explained during the workshop.
