'Blockchain', We hear this buzzword used all the time but do we really know what it means?
It is highly probable that you have heard of the ‘Blockchain’ before, whether it be in a news article, a hawker centre or on the MRT; everyone seems to be talking about it.
The truth is, most of us could not explain Blockchain in great detail, despite it being talked about in every innovation and technology forum.
The Blockchain refers to so much more than Cryptocurrency, and has many applications across multiple industries that can potentially impact our lives for the better.
If you've ever been curious about the world of Blockchain, and want to learn more about the growing applications of this technology, join as at our event ‘Blockchain for Every Business’ where we will explore:
• How the Blockchain will revolutionise industries
• What UX Designers can bring to the Blockchain and how to get started in this space
