Blockchain 101, an introduction to Web 3, The Future of Internet.
20th October 2022
12:00pm - 2:00pm
Digital Jersey Hub
This course is a guide to understand the next generation of Internet services and explain why blockchains are at the heart of this innovation. In addition, we hope this course to serve as a reference in the next decades, akin to how younger generations seek books to fathom the Internet of the mid-1980s and the Web of the early 1990s.
The crypto industry is growing fast, with different sectors: Decentralized Finance, NFTs and Big Data — similar to the SaaS industry. Emerging use cases of blockchains may disrupt and expand business models in financial services, eCommerce, art, music, and more.
We are still in the early innings of this innovation, created by just 0.06% of the world’s developers. This course lays out the risks, issues, and potential solutions to bring Web 3 to billions of people.
Length: 1 hour 30 minutes including 30 minutes Q&A
Light Lunch / Refreshments included
