Big Ideas Speaker Series... Bloc­kchain Revolution

  • Desautels Hall, Rotman, Toronto 105 Saint George Street Toronto, ON, M5S 2E8 Canada

Blockchain...a buzzword of 2016...is the next big thing..or is it??  Is it a builder or disrupter?  Is it the second era of the internet (giving value vs giving information)

In its simplest terms..a blockchain is “a technology that allows people who don’t know each other to trust a shared record of events."  Who now needs a middleman?

I would like to better understand Blockchain technology, and its affect on culture and the arts. (asset ownership, copyright, authentication, digital assets and its movement).  Its an interesting software proposition, with many real-world applications (not just Bitcoin and fintech)

One of the biggest struggles in new technology is "Education"...so lets get educated at this event on January 11th at Rotman.
