Blockchain: What’s all the Fuss about?

Blockchain. You must have heard the term. Is it a hype, another buzzword, or is it going to change our world as industry leaders as Gartner, MIT and Microsoft claim? Maarten believes that blockchain will have wide-reaching implications that will transform many businesses and industries, including his. But what is it and how can you use it? This session is aimed at answering these questions for the SharePoint, Office 365 & Azure community. The session will begin with a short explanation of what Blockchain is. Blockchain is a distributed ledger in which transactions are sequentially grouped into blocks. Each block is “chained” to the previous block and recorded and validated across a peer-to-peer network. The blocks can contain information and have programmable behaviour. Concepts like Proof-of-Ownership, Proof-of-Authenticity, Proof-of-Process and Smart Contracts, will be explained using real-life business cases for SharePoint, Office 365 & Azure. Time allowing, there will be a live demo for Office 365 SharePoint.
