Join us for a half day workshop taking you beyond the hype and beyond the theory, so you can really decide what works, what doesn’t, and how to plan effective use of blockchain for your company.

We plan to tackle the following topics:

8.30 - 9 am - arrival, coffee and tea

9.00 - 10.45 Briefing session

  • What blockchain is, what it isn’t – getting underneath the hype to the nuts and bolts
  • Why is it transformational, and where - what industries will it affect?
  • Explaining smart contracts, cryptocurrencies, ICOs (and how to avoid the hype about them)
  • How and where is blockchain currently being used in reality? A summary of case studies
  • What implementations and frameworks exist and should be considered?
  • What does the future for Blockchain look like?

10.45 - 11.15 Break - Drinks, Biscuits and Networking

11.15 - 1 pm Workshop session

  • Hands on the technology with a blockchain sandbox
  • Brainstorm potential use and use cases for your company
  • Fitting blockchain into your strategic plan

The event will be informal, with plenty of opportunities for Q&A, followed by a light lunch & networking

Depending on numbers, we will either include a hands on session with a blockchain sandbox or a demo of how it is set up and operates. Bring your MacBook or Laptop if you want to get hands on.

We have been tracking the Bitcoin/blockchain environment for many years, and just recently were co-organisers of the London part of the Global Legal Hackathon. We will share our primary research into who is really using blockchain,and for what.
