Bitcoin, Ethereum, ICO, Blockchain… These terms are getting more and more visible in the media but still represent concepts difficult to understand for many of us. The crypto-token (or currency) market has seen significant growth for the past few months, attracting ever more investors and innovators. Some of their questions are:
• What are the differences between the main crypto-tokens?
• How can the industry adapt to the new regulations and recent events?
• What is happening in the blockchain world outside of the speculative market?
• What are the next major innovations?
• How to develop a career in the blockchain tech?
For this ApéroTalk, we’re happy to welcome Thomas Glucksmann, who has recently been speaking at the Tokyo Fin/Sum Week, to share his view on the rapidly moving blockchain industry and answer a few of the above questions.
ApéroTalk is our events series based on a very simple (and very French) concept: Apéro and Talk.
• 7:00 pm – Door opens
• 7:30 pm – Talk and Q&A by Thomas
• 8:30 pm – Networking session
