The first day will focus on defining Blockchain. Organizers will also present the emerging industry’s history, evolution, and future, with different lectures and workshops.
On the second day, topics will cover different business applications and case studies. There will also be a Hackathon to create different solutions in diverse case scenarios using your creativity leveraging Blockchain technology.
Some of the speakers and workshop facilitators will come from Microsoft, IBM, Consensys, and Katun. They are also some of the sponsors of Blockchain Summit Latam.
