What is the Blockchain? What are crypto currencies?
Blockchain is one of the biggest buzzwords in technology right now. But what is it? The first major application of blockchain technology was bitcoin which was released in 2009. Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and the blockchain is the technology that underpins it. A cryptocurrency refers to a digital coin that runs on a blockchain. Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies which are used for non-monetary transactions.

In the workshop, you will learn the basic fundamtentals of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
