This is Part 2 of the How to Speak Tech workshop. We HIGHLY recommend attending “How to Speak Tech” which meets immediately before this session.
Have you heard people talk about blockchain and not really get it? Maybe you have a basic understanding of crypto but get lost once people start talking about blockchain, web3, chains, ethereum, Metaverse, etc… Or maybe you don’t even get crypto that well. In this session, we’ll break down what blockchain really is. This is a talk for people who have been trying to understand what blockchain is and still just can’t wrap their mind around it. We’ll try to make it as simple as possible.
