You may have heard about the world-changing potential of blockchains — the technology behind cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. But what are they exactly? And why are companies clamoring to use and develop blockchain technologies?
“It’s not too outlandish to think that in five years time, every Fortune 500 company and perhaps even the top 1,000 will have deployed a blockchain somewhere,” said Hyperledger Executive Director Brian Behlendorf, in a recent article on Linux.com.
In a free webinar to be held Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. Pacific, guest speaker Dan O’Prey, CMO of Digital Asset Holdings, will provide an overview of blockchain technology and the Hyperledger Project at The Linux Foundation.
Hyperledger is an umbrella project for software developer communities building open source blockchain and related technologies. It is a neutral, foundational community for participating companies such as IBM, Intel, Cisco, JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, the London Stock Exchange, Red Hat, and Swift to work together to develop the technology and address issues of code provenance, patent rights, standards, and policy.
In this webinar, Dan will cover:
The foundations of distributed ledger technologies, smart contracts, and other components that comprise the modern blockchain technology stack.
Why a new blockchain project was needed for business and what the main use cases and requirements for the technology are for commercial applications, as well as extending the overview on the history and projects in the Hyperledger umbrella and how you can get involved.
