Blockchain is described as the new revolutionary technology that will potentially change how both industry and government interact and transform day to day transactions. Whilst the hype about Bitcoin has highlighted certain challenges about the technology, Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), Ethereum, Smart Contracts and Hyperledger are gaining traction.
This breakfast seminar will provide an overview of the Blockchain landscape in Ireland with presentations from the IDA, Consensys, QPQ and Evidential Tech, two blockchain start-ups coupled with insights on the Blockchain Ireland ecosystem. In addition to this, we will provide details on the forthcoming global ISO Blockchain Standards conference in Dublin later this year and the EU Cost Action IC1406 project cHiPSet.
Whether you are a technologist, business leader or keen to understand more about this emerging technology you are welcome to register for our second breakfast seminar of 2019 hosted by the Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet and the Innovation Forum.
