Blockchain: New technological opportunities to rebuild trust
Our partner, NWC10Lab, an innovation laboratory specialized in Blockchain, will make it possible for thousands of people to learn online, free of charge, about the shortcomings of today's technology during the current epidemic, and opportunities for technological development. This initiative will start on Thursday, April 16th at 7p.m.(Madrid), and will last until the end of the lockdown. Renowned experts will participate in this initiative to describe different problems, such as breakage and lack of transparency in supplies, spread of fake news, rejection of cash, loss of credibility of governments, protection of the privacy of citizens, or online certification and registry.
Under the name NWC10Lab Talks and under the motto "Blockchain Lessons Learned", 500 speakers will share their experience with Blockchain technology and what they're currently working on. They will also analyse the developments in the field and their opinion on Blockchain's shortcomings in view of the current global crisis and how this affects digital trust.
