How will blockchain change our society?
Wednesday 25 April, 2018 - 16:15 - 18:45
Blockchain is a very topical issue at the moment. If you want to lead the conversation next time you discuss new ground-breaking technologies at a dinner party, you should meet two of CBS’ PhD fellows. They will help you demystify the concept of blockchain. PhD Juan Giraldo will talk about why the virtual currency bitcoin is worth drawing attention to, and Casper Winther-Hansen will provide a general idea of how blockchain can improve our health but also what risks are implied.
