Session Description

Chances are you heard about Bitcoin and Blockchain, and would like to know more. You may have even sat through a session with terms like “trust protocol” and “asymetric cryptography” and come away with little more knowledge than you had before. It’s time for a Bitcoin/Blockchain discussion without all of the industry jargon!

In this session you will learn the basics of Blockchain technology, and how it’s being used to create virtual currencies such as Bitcoin. Neal Denny will provide additional insight into how Provident Metals is using Bitcoin as part of its business model. The session will close with a discussion of some of the possible future trends for Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies.
