In this Tech Talk we will examine the evolution of Blockchain from Bitcoin in the financial industry and beyond.
Since Bitcoin was introduced to the world in the immediate aftermath of the Financial Crisis, a whole ecosystem of coexisting Blockchains and associated applications has emerged. This distributed ledger technology is often described as a new protocol layer on the Internet, on which entrepreneurs and companies can create groundbreaking innovations.
