What You’ll Learn

Day 1

Day one of Kingsland’s Executive Blockchain Fast Track program introduces blockchain technology and gives executives both an overview of how blockchain works and discusses the emerging implications for industries disrupted by blockchain technology.

BLOCKCHAIN EXPLAINED
In this session, we look at the history of blockchain and provide a non-technical overview of blockchain technology. We introduce decentralized ledgers, the premise of ‘trustless’ transactions and consider some of the potential security, legal and risk issues that arise from the technology through applied blockchain case studies.

CRYPTOCURRENCIES AND TOKEN ECONOMICS
This session provides executives with an introduction to cryptography and the mechanics of the cryptocurrency market and the altcoin, or ‘token’, economy. It introduces initial coin offerings (ICOs) as a method of capital-raising via the blockchain and looks at some of the regulatory and compliance risks associated with ICOs.

SMART CONTRACTS AND DAPPS (DECENTRALIZED APPS)
In this session, we introduce Ethereum and its role in facilitating ‘smart contracts’.  We look at the value and role of smart contracts and discuss decentralized apps (Dapps). Through case studies, we consider the scope and limitations of blockchain technology.

INDUSTRY DISRUPTION – IMPACTS AND OPPORTUNITIES
This session looks at the ways in which blockchain disrupts specific industries. We discuss the impacts and opportunities for companies and organisations in industries where blockchain is likely to revolutionize business practice, and consider strategies to mitigate risk and leverage blockchain technology for competitive advantage.
