The topic “Blockchain” has been buzzing around the world for quite some time, and this was already made public at the first trade fairs and congresses two years ago. But it was only with the success of the crypto currencies and the rise of Ethereum that the potential slowly became apparent.
Blockchain is the technology behind crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and others. Information is written down in individual blocks and this block is “chained” to the previous block (chain). The next information is then chained to the previous block again, creating information chains that can no longer be changed without being noticed. In addition, these chains are then played on many other servers and every request or change / extension is checked for its correctness on all these servers. This makes subsequent changes to the data impossible. A detailed explanation of the Blockchain technology can be found here:
Now the topic is still quite fresh when you talk to corporations and medium-sized businesses, the first large tech companies and companies dare first pilot projects. However, until the technology can be used across the board, there is still a lot of technological and cultural change and development to be done. One more reason to take a closer look at the subject, as it triggered a similar gold-rush atmosphere as the early phase of the Internet in the 1990s.
Therefore we have organized a Meetup for the topic “Blockchain & Cryptocurrencies” with further Startup and experts from the region, in which a relaxed exchange of experiences about possibilities and challenges of this technology can be discussed. The kick-off meeting took place in November 2017 and the response was so positive that we have developed a series of events from it.
