Blockchain Myths and Realities

Register for this live video webcast – Thursday, Feb 13 at 1 PM PT Ask the expert – get your questions about blockchain answered by an industry expert. 

Blockchain is far more than the technology that supports bitcoin. By offering a distributed ledger that enables secure, verifiable transactions between multiple businesses (or individuals), it will most certainly impact business in numerous – and profound – ways. 

And yet some business – and industry observers – say blockchain is closer to vaporware than reality. And that few businesses will ever actually deploy blockchain technology.

To get a clear picture of the current state and future of this emerging technology, I’ll speak with a leading expert: Don Tapscott, co-founder and Executive Chairman at Blockchain Research Institute.

Tapscott is the co-author of Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Behind Bitcoin Is Changing Money, Business, and the World. Reviews of the book have been strong, including the following:

“The blockchain is one of the most fundamental inventions in the history of computer science. Read Blockchain Revolution to understand its profound implications.”

Marc Andreessen, cofounder, Netscape and Andreessen Horowitz

“The Tapscotts have written the book, literally, on how to survive and thrive in this next wave of technology-driven disruption. Likely to become one of the iconic books of our time.”

Clay Christensen, author, The Innovator’s Dilemma
