This past December, I hosted a Blockchain 101 Session for Executives on behalf of the National Association of REALTORS. The half-day session was led by Marta Piekarska, Ph.D., the Director of Ecosystems for the Hyperledger Project. There was cross-industry participation, with speakers from the State of Illinois, the Chicago Blockchain Center, and CRT Labs.
The 40-person audience received:
• an introductory lesson on blockchain and distributed ledger technology.
• demonstrations of practical blockchain applications showcasing industries like Real Estate.
• expert opinions on where this technology is headed in the near and distant future.
