Event description

Description

The world has changed. The push economy where advertisers sell us products and services that has long dominated the way we consume has been disrupted by a new pull economy, characterised by platforms such as Uber and Airbnb, where consumers take part in providing and shaping the services provided.

Alongside this, the rise of the digital currency Bitcoin, along with its supporting technology Blockchain, offers a radical new model of peer-to-peer trading, which raises questions about our existing economic models, and threatens to undermine long accepted financial power structures. This has precipitated an explosion of new products and thinking around decentralised trading of goods and services.

This workshop​, designed and run by Edinburgh University,​ is for anyone interested in exploring this rapidly developing new territory. You don’t need to be a nerd or a tech head. If you are interested in learning about blockchain and exploring some of the possibilities that it has for social change and rapid disruption, we want you to come along!

So sign up – it’s for everyone – from the geeks that love to tinker and want to know more about this exciting technology through to those just learning about blockchain who are fascinated by the potential.

Tea/Coffee and breakfast will be provided.
