Seminar: Blockchain technology

Welcome to Seminar on Blockchain technology


Blockchain technology has been described as the biggest technical revolution since the Internet. The technology – which is the basis for the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, but which can be used for much more – enables digital transactions without the use of intermediaries, which are much faster and also more secure than has previously been possible. Blockchain technology is expected to change a wide range of business sectors fundamentally, such as banks and finance, consumer goods, supply chain, automotive, energy, legal services, etc. In this seminar by ÅF Pöyry, we will explore :

  • The strengths and weaknesses of the underlying distributed ledger technology.
  • Lessons learned from early blockchain projects, and how the most promising new initiatives are attempting to transform key global industries.
  • The potential for blockchain to address pressing social challenges, from expanding access to financial services to tracking war crimes
  • How legal and regulatory environments around the world are adapting to the arrival of cryptocurrencies.
