The Blockchain in Education East Conference

About The Blockchain in Education East Conference

The Blockchain in Education East Conference will enable education professionals to understand how blockchain technology such as cryptocurrency, smart contracts, distributed databases, and public ledgers are, and will continue to transform their sector.

We are now seeing start-ups focusing on blockchain – whilst existing technology businesses are integrating blockchain technology into their overall offerings - building pilots and working with customers to develop roadmaps forward.

The first blockchain was theorized by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 and applied the following year as a key component of the digital currency bitcoin, but that was just the tip of the iceberg.

A secure public ledger concept can be applied to many aspects of the education sector whilst removing slow and outdated workflows.

The Blockchain in Education East Conference is being meticulously produced to further the education of organizations in:

• Higher Education
• Chief Information Officers
• Presidents
• Department Chairs
• Administrators
• Instructional Designers
• K12
• Superintendents
• Corporate IT departments
• Students studying Related fields
