Blockchain is one of those terms - like .com or mobile or AI - that everyone wants but can't quite tell you why. On one level, the Blockchain may be the most ground breaking, game changing innovation since the internet itself. On the other hand, that sounds like a lot of hype, & perhaps at this stage, that's all it is. Please join NYC Startup Academy on Wednesday, May 16 as we welcome blockchain luminary Harumi Urata-Thompson. We will pull back the curtain on the blockchain & explore ideas for using blockchain to build your existing business or for building a solid business built around blockchain. Harumi will also help us learn how to separate the blockchain hipsters from the hypesters as more & more people try to ride this wave.
