  3. What is Blockchain? Blockchain is the technology underpinning Bitcoin. It

    is a shared, cryptographically protected digital database that allows transactions to be recorded and verified electronically over a network of computers without a central ledger. Because the information in a blockchain is stored in a public, decentralized place, it is accessible and can be audited—and therefore it can be tracked for the purposes of preventing money-laundering or fraud. #pubcon
  4. Investment Outlook “I think Bitcoin startups need to be extremely

    practical . . . You [have] to get the customers. Otherwise, it’s going to be just like virtual reality — possibly. Virtual reality, fifteen years ago, was really hot. Then, it disappeared after the dotcom crash… If there is a correction, Bitcoin will get blown out — unless you start making something people want — and then it might be another fifteen years before Bitcoin comes back, just like virtual reality.” – Terrence Yang, Yang Ventures #pubcon

  6. Future Focus “Blockchain will become [the] beating heart of the

    global financial system…Similar to any technological innovation, blockchain comes with a set of risks that must be considered,… These include errors in the design, malicious autonomous behaviour as a consequence of human decisions, and potential gaps in security across all inputs and outputs. Challenges such as these must be overcome if the economic and social benefits of blockchain are to be realized.” – World Economic Forum #pubcon
