People are always waiting for the next big thing. We have had the Internet, mobile phones, social networks which have changed our life and mentality. But we have also had google glasses, segway and… Dutch tulips. These things are cool, but not that big after all. So how about the blockchain? Is it the next big thing?
This is not an easy question to answer these days: the technology is just starting to develop, and most of the knowledge around it is created and shared by techies for techies. But what if you are not the one?
Rise Tel Aviv, the open innovation platform of Barclays, Gvahim, an Israeli non-profit working with highly-skilled new immigrants and Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipal Department for Immigrant Absorption are joining forces to make blockchain more accessible to people who want to understand the implications and applications of blockchain but lack technical background.
We are gathering on May 15th at Rise to talk in a jargon-less language about the basics of blockchain and to try to understand whether it is the next big thing.
