Blockchain Technologies & Internet Governance: Secrets & How To’s

‹ Back

The Internet Society Middle East Bureau, in collaboration with [email protected] Jordan, invite you to a “Blockchain Technologies & Internet Governance: Secrets & How To’s”.

The program entails a morning session in the form of an interactive exercise in which participants learn about the mining process (proof-of-work) in a crypto-currency simulation. Also, the session covers some of the exciting yet primarily misunderstood aspects of blockchain technology such as smart contracts and decentralized apps (DApps).

The afternoon session, however, is in the form of a discussion about blockchain technologies use cases and implications for the internet and society at large. The event ensures active participation of attendees and provides a thorough introduction to blockchain technology to attendees with various levels of experience.

This interactive learning experience will have you start thinking about how this rapidly growing technology may impact day-to-day online activities from social media networking to e-health and from online payments to e-banking.
