Seminar: Blockchain – It’s time to find out more

22 February @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm, Newcastle

Kate Baucherel, Blockchain speaker

Blockchain is associated with fintech and cryptocurrencies, but this Christmas it is being used in a new experiment meant to see whether blockchain technology can be used to track birds from farm to market and help consumers understand where their birds are coming from. So where else is it being used in businesses, in government and even in Charities?

We will look at societal angles that arise, such as educating the wider population on its potential, the need for governance, skills readiness and its scope as a technology for re-dressing economic imbalances.

Join us and lead discussants including Fintan Galvin, CEO of Invotra, Kate Baucherel, Digital Strategist and Saulius Venskutonis, Member of the Newcastle University Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Society for some real-world uses of blockchain, discover what it is and a whole lot of myth busting. myth busting.

Places are limited and networking drinks will follow the event.
