What's "blockchain" and why are so many people talking about it? Is it a fad or here to stay? Join us for an intro to Blockchain as a disruptor technology and learn about its business and human resources applications.
During our session we will:
Provide a non-technical overview to help understand what the blockchain is best at, what it’s not good at.
Experience a real blockchain example via an app.
Demonstrate its overall potential value through use cases for overall businesses and for HR
