The advent of the World Wide Web initiated an unprecedented pace of societal change transforming global communication. The next wave of disruptive technology has arrived. Blockchain will revolutionise the exchange of valuable assets, across all sectors of finance and commerce to government. The technology is based on the Bitcoin digital currency invented by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. Users can exchange valuable assets without a need for a trusted third party such as banks; delivering a faster, more robust transaction whilst reducing cost.
Ben Shambrook and Fide Hossein, computing students from Canterbury Christ Church University excelled during a rigorous interview process with Bitbond Ltd, to secure a sponsored space on the prestigious IBM Blockchain Training program. The intensive session took place between 17th-20th October at IBM Hursley Research Centre in Hampshire. IBM is the largest technology and consulting employer in the world, serving clients in 170 countries; and regarded as a leader in global transformation. The students immersed themselves in the ground-breaking technology alongside 40 delegates from around the world, including Chief Technology Officers from a number of leading international banks.
The Christmas master talk will provide a thought-provoking insight into the transformational impact and potential of this technology. A whistle-stop tour of Blockchain networks and links for the IBM Hyperledger toolkit will also be shared.
Ben and Fida will deliver this stimulating address together with Floren Cabrera F. de Teresa, Chief Executive Officer, Bitbond Ltd.
At the end of the session, participants will be directed to the IBM Blockchain resources.
