Introduction to Blockchain
technology

Blockchain is today’s technology, yet few know about it, there is a lot of misunderstanding, misinformation. It affects the financial sector to a large extent, so many people see it only as an investment.

Application areas

We believe it is important to show the technology behind the financial opportunity which could help or already helps to solve problems in almost all areas. Such areas may be: public administration, trade, logistics, proof of origin, industrial processes etc.

To whom we recommend?

We recommend our training to those, who are curious, know little or nothing about this new technology, or know about it but are not sure of their knowledge.

By the end of the training, we’ll give you a comprehensive picture of the blockchain technology, thereby you’ll be able to filter out misinformation, you’ll know where the technology is now and where it’s headed, and probably you’ll have plenty of ideas on your own, which we will discuss and help you decide where to go next.
