About

Blockchain foundation training

Blockchain is a distributed ledger that is replicated across multiple nodes to enable immutable, permanent, transparent, and secure record-keeping of transactions. The original design of blockchain focused on the cryptocurrency “Bitcoin” but its potential is spanning many diverse industries such as finance, logistics, insurance, medicine and even music.

We designed this training to help executives understand what is Blockchain and what are the possible applications of the technology and its impact on the business strategy.
