Theis Simonsen and Kristian Vestergaard will be joining us for an introduction to the concepts of blockchain, cryptocurrency, smart contracts, how the technology is being used and what we could expect in the coming years. They are aiming at debunking some of the myths and inspire us about why the technology matter, where it can be used, and where it is used. The pair makes up half of the partners that are building the Tagion system, a system that addresses many of the issues with current blockchain-based solutions and that – by industry insiders – is seen as a technology that may be the backbone in the transaction networks of tomorrow.
Theis and Kristian’s talk covers five topics:
There will be room for discussions throughout and time to going way beyond the basis on at least some of the topics.
