This seminar will give a gentle, conceptual and honest introduction to blockchain technology. Gentle means that the seminar is targeted to non experts. Conceptual means the focus will be on key concepts instead of technicalities or one specific blockchain platform. Last but not least, honest means that the seminar will not be the (usual) enthusiastic business talk about blockchain, but it will highlight misconceptions and dispel some common myths about blockchain.
