This evening session will provide a basic introduction to blockchain, smart contracts and cryptocurrency. Whether you know nothing about them or have a little bit of knowledge, at this event you will find out what they are, what they do, what they mean and the pros and cons of each. You will also have the chance to ask any burning questions, no matter what they are, and network with others to share your ideas.

Please note that we will not be discussing the prices of or investment in cryptocurrencies, as this is a completely separate topic to the technology behind each of them and we can not provide investment advice.
