Blockchain is a new, potentially disruptive technology that is attracting a lot of interest from individuals, as well as organizations of all types and sizes. Today, blockchain is most famously associated with Bitcoin, the popular digital currency for which the technology was originally developed. But there's many more potential uses for this somewhat arcane technology, including publicly accessible ledgers for record-keeping of items such as contracts and property deeds. It can also be used to protect intellectual property or for file storage, and there's even potential roles for it in governance. And due to its decentralized, distributed architecture, blockchain is both robust and theoretically incorruptible. Currently, though, blockchain technology is poorly understood, and although there is increasing interest in it, most people don't know what is being done with it and how it could be of value in a particular industry.

In this video course, designed for those who are just beginning to look into this fascinating technology, your host, Dr. Jonathan Reichental, will help you to fully understand the scope of blockchain technology and how it can be used. Dr. Reichental describes a variety of applications in different industries. Upon completion, you will be knowledgeable enough to determine whether blockchain technology is worth exploring further for yourself or on behalf of your organization.
