Title: Blockchain Applications beyond Cryptocurrency
Speaker: Dr. Lipyeow Lim, ICS Dept.
Blockchain technology has graduated from supporting cryptocurrency to many other fields. There is an explosion of blockchain proof-of-concepts in the financial sector and beyond. In this talk, we will NOT dive into the technical details of how blockchain works, we will, however, explore how the key features of blockchain technology differ from conventional database technology and survey several usecases of blockchain particularly in the government sector. We will use the remaining time to brainstorm and imagine how blockchain-based services could change our lives in the state of Hawai`i.
