On March 13-14, The Blockchain Academy presented by B3 – Blockchain Business Board – moves to London. After The Blockchain Summit – November 11th 2016 – and The Blockchain Academy held at Politecnico di Milano in December 2016, B3 is continuing to improve its educational offering.
B3 is conscious that with the advance of Digital disruption, it’s crucial to gain a proper understanding of Bitcoin and its underlying Blockchain technology to help leverage its full potential. ‘Distributed consensus’ without intermediaries or central authority could lead to disruption in Financial and Notarization services. The next step to such disruption leads to the Internet of Value (IoV), which already seems to be redefining the industrial, banking, and government landscapes. The application of cryptography in distributed ledgers, smart contracts, and tamper resistant records is going to play a vital role in any technological stack as well as in changing the history of money.
Participants will gain proper knowledge about Bitcoin and Blockchain as well as an understanding of how this technology fits into the existing economic framework. The Full Academy (2 days) is designed for those who want a comprehensive outlook on Bitcoin and Blockchain Technology: the first day is made of an introduction which covers most of the relevant topics that any C-Level exec would want to know. The second day provides an in-depth analysis of the most important technological breakthroughs made possible by Blockchain.
The proposed approach of The Blockchain Academy is that more than a technology this is a groundbreaking cultural paradigm shift. Participants will be able to study as well as practice what they will be listening from Ferdinando M. Ametrano who has been speaking about Bitcoin at Banca d’Italia, Italian Parliament Lower House, IlSole24Ore. Ferdinando was Chairman of the Host Committee for Scaling Bitcoin 2016 in Milan also.
Last but not least, Garrick Hileman, Economic Historian at the University of Cambridge and London School of Economics, will be presenting the results of the Blockchain Research co-authored by Vincenzo Morabito, Associate Professor at Università Bocconi and Founding Partner of B3.
The Blockchain Academy is the second educational event organized by B3 – Blockchain Business Board.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: C-level execs conceding that they need to properly understand what is going on, transaction bankers, regulators, innovators, payment institution managers, technologists, software developers, security experts, lawyers and notaries interested in the digital domain.
WHEN AND WHERE IS IT: 13/14 March 2017 Tower Room – London & Partners
6th floor, 2 More London Riverside, SE1 2RR, London (UK)
