FOR STATION F MEMBERS AND RESIDENTS ONLY

Come and meet William Mougayar for his talk about Blockchain "Understanding the Blockchain opportunity".

William is a Toronto-based investor, blogger, author of The Business Blockchain and advisor to some of the world’s leading blockchain organizations.

The fundamental characteristics of blockchains are puzzling to consumers, corporations, governments, policy makers and regulators, because their implementation challenges centrally orchestrated trust, and enables a new kind of trust: one that is distributed, decentralized, from peer to peer, and not centrally managed by any single entity. Take any service, and add “without previous center-based authority”, and replace by “peer to peer, trust-based network”, and you will start to imagine the possibilities.
