BLOCKCHAIN MASTERCLASS DUBAI
MEDIA ROTANA

"This (Blockchain) technology represents nothing less than the second generation of the Internet, and it holds the potential to transform money, business, government and society"
- Time Magazine

18 SEPTEMBER 2017

overview

Blockchain has brought on a fundamental shift in the way we carry out business transactions, banking, education, governance and pretty much everything else. Blockchain has been publicized to be the next generation of internet as it is no less transformative in its potential to liberate the commercial and business world than the advent of Internet that proliferated global exchange of information.

Blockchain combines the power of Peer-to-peer technology with strong encryption to facilitate a secure, distributed ledger that overcomes the problems of single point of vulnerability, distribution of data and its control, bandwidth limitations and the problem of double spend. When Dubai announced its Blockchain strategy and the innovative thinking behind the Public Sector transformation into Blockchain technology, it brought the future right in front of us. With this course we hope to deliver that upcoming opportunity within your reach.
