According to Gartner, ‘Blockchain’ has been the number one search term on their Web site since 2017. Blockchain may have been discounted because of the early hype and the collapse in the value of cryptocurrencies. However, the game changing potential of Blockchain technologies, including smart contracts, Cybersecurity, and decentralized finance mean that CIO’s and senior technology managers need to be up to speed and prepared to make good decisions on how Blockchain technologies can help their business. Westchester Fairfield SIM is pleased to welcome Solomon Lederer, CEO of Blockchain training startup Blockmatics who will talk about the latest technical, business and legal reasons why you should be getting ready for Blockchain now.
