The technology powering Bitcoin is more than just a payments system - it’s a disruptive improvement to the Internet. This workshop will teach you the basics of blockchain technology and explain how its decentralized design enables trust over the Internet.

Launched in 2009, Bitcoin is a primitive example of a blockchain. There are now entire ecosystems of other decentralized technologies, such as smart contracts, autonomous organizations, and digital identity. This workshop will give you insight into the many use cases for blockchain and where the technology is headed.

Although blockchain was developed to challenge traditional institutions, regulatory agencies around the world have acted quickly to regulate and adopt this developing technology. This workshop will provide an overview of how blockchain fits into to the bigger picture of law and society.
