Event Details

Blockchain or Distributed Ledger Technologies are currently amongst the biggest, most hyped trends in the technology and finance sector.

Blockchain possesses the potential of changing many of our current transaction systems, not only those regarding the monetary field. The transfer of health data, energies, smart contracting…it’s a long list!

On the 24th of October the Vienna Chapter of Mountain View based Singularity University aims to explore Blockchain, a term which many still interpret as ´too abstract`.

  • How can Blockchain be clearly and evenly explained and understood?
  • In which fields can this technology help us execute and simplify processes at a faster pace, more securely, with less money to spend?
  • Does Blockchain possess the potential of disrupting platforms such as Uber or Airbnb, due to ongoing peer to peer transactions?
  • What are possible consequences that society may face from a Blockchain technology?

Be part of an exclusive discussion round hosted by the SingularityU Vienna Community and debate alongside experts and gain access to new ways of thinking!
