Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that is changing the world. It is a digital and decentralized system that records transactions and stores them in a public ledger. Blockchain provides an efficient way of storing data, with the ability to reduce or eliminate transaction fees and middlemen, as well as provide security for the information stored.
Unfortunately, it still largely remains an esoteric technology, that is not understood outside of technical circles.
In this workshop, we demystify the world of blockchain, explaining what are the amazing opportunities that it presents, and how businesses can benefit from it.
This workshop is designed by blockchain experts, for non-experts.
The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Marcel Müller, a German deep tech entrepreneur, researcher, and consultant. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science on engineering methods to create trust-aware business processes with distributed ledger technologies and authored more than a dozen peer-reviewed scientific publications. Marcel has worked on enterprise blockchain projects in supply chain management, energy, and finance and is the founder of KnowledgeX.
