Many of us have heard of blockchain and the definitions are becoming more digestible in this tech-centered world – but the sectors that blockchain impacts are no longer limited to solely financial services. At this event, Chun Yin Cheung and Michael Xia will provide an overview of blockchain technology and its development in recent years. By sharing case studies in several non-financial industries, such as retail & consumer, food, and logistics, the two speakers will shed light on the opportunities and challenges of applying blockchain in a business environment.
