ACS Blockchain Fundamentals Report Launch and Workshop

The new Blockchain Fundamentals guide from ACS is designed as a non-technical introduction to the world of blockchain. It’s for everyone who has been hearing about blockchain technology for years, but never understood what the fuss was about or why it mattered. The report covers what blockchains are, what problems the creators were trying to solve, and the world-changing applications that they are enabling, far beyond just Bitcoin and cryptocurrency.

Registration End Date: Mon, 26 Sep, 05:00 PM
