In near real-time, the world is watching the evolution of blockchain technology. Born of Bitcoin, Blockchain 1.0 established the viability of the public ledger concept and introduced the reality of a new digital currency. Today, Blockchain 2.0 is underway with the rapid exploration of cryptographic ledgers by financial services players. In a domain we call Blockchain 3.0 is the use of these tools in cases beyond what the financial institution requires, including digital value exchange across the Internet of Things as well as the management of non-financial asset classes such as stocks, bonds, land titles, and more.

Join Glenbrook for this interactive, one-day session on how these networked ledgers work, where they are put to use today, and how innovation may extend their use deep into financial institutions, business, and our personal lives. Come and work through the mechanics – the regulations – the players – and the economics in our “deep dive” workshop. We promise you’ll leave understanding much more!
