Blockchain is revolutionizing how we process transactions and following to that has gained its popularity. But do you understand the technique behind the buzzword? Do you know what more you can do with it than to keep an eye on your crypto wallet? In this webinar we'll demystify the buzzwords and get to grips with the subject.
Tine Holvoet, senior researcher at Vlerick Business School, will help you gain understanding about the essence of blockchain and to see the opportunities for integrating blockchain into your organization. Her advice to get started:
 Understand some basics, such as the meaning of a distributed ledger.
 Don’t confuse blockchain technology and its popstar Bitcoin.
 Try to pinpoint exact opportunities and limitations.
Following, in this webinar, we will first guide you to understand some basics of blockchain, such as the meaning of a distributed – or more nicely expressed ‘shared’ – computerized ledger. We'll interact about the possibilities reaching beyond the cryptocurrencies. We'll guide you into thinking about how it could - or maybe should - be incorporated as a future service in your field of work. And going beyond the technique, we'll also talk about some of the ethical matters when it comes to the world(s) in which blockchain can excel.
