Product Tank Montreal + blockchain mtl joint meetup.
Launched to the world as the backbone of a single cryptocurrency, blockchain has evolved into a range of technologies that offer the promise of a new type of web infrastructure characterized by lower friction, improved data storage and decentralization. With the success of new platforms like Ethereum and the stunning growth of the ICOs as a fundraising tool, it is an exciting time for the blockchain community.
But what does it all mean for product people? In Product + Blockchain, we'll hear from three speakers who are actively building products using blockchain. They will share about specific use cases, reflect on the power and drawbacks of the technology, and hopefully take some guesses at where things are headed. Given the technical nature of the topic, we advise reading up a bit in advance. See links below.
