Long Live The Blockchain!
Soon this will be a famously known statement around the world. Blockchain technology is taking every industry by storm.
The blockchain came about with the introduction of Bitcoin in 2009. It is believed to be the most revolutionary invention to happen in recent times, after the internet.
For those who’ve come in late, “the blockchain” is the underlying technology behind cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. “The Bitcoin” was the very first application built upon this blockchain technology.
But Bitcoin was only the first application of blockchain tech. Now, conferences are being held across the globe to educate, apply, and discuss the impact of this disruptive technology in all different fields, sectors, and aspects of life.
And fortunately, India is no longer a distant stranger to this technology, as one such conference will take place in Mumbai in September.
The event – India Blockchain Week (aka IBW’17) – is a golden opportunity to mingle with blockchain revolutionaries from all over the world.
