Blockchain: What’s all the fuss about?

Blockchain. You must have heard the term. Is it a hype, another buzzword, or is it going to change our world as industry leaders as Gartner, MIT and Microsoft claim?

I also believe that blockchain will have wide-reaching implications that will transform many businesses and industries, including our own.

But what is it and how can you use it?

This short session is aimed at starting to answer these questions for the SharePoint, Office 365 & Azure community.

I’ll start the session with a short explanation of what Blockchain is. Blockchain is a distributed ledger in which transactions are sequentially grouped into blocks. Each block is “chained” to the previous block and recorded and validated across a peer-to-peer network. The blocks can contain information and have programmable behavior.

I’ll explain one example – Proof-of-Authenticity – using a real business case. A live demo for Office 365 SharePoint will be presented at our booth.
