The Blockchain masterclass organised by techUK was a great session with delegates from various industry domains. Without being biased on any particular industry, it gave a very good detailed insight about Blockchain technology, core concepts & security, and helped think of use cases or challenge them. It also helped rationalise myth busters rather than just knowing them. It was amazing how people’s viewpoints changed to a more positive aspect of the distributed ledger technology after the session.
