Blockchain Essentials

Blockchain is a shared ledger technology that leverages cryptographic techniques and voting-based consensus algorithms to deliver greater degrees of trust, transparency, speed and security across disparate stakeholders in modern business networks.  The technology itself is applicable across all industry verticals (healthcare, capital markets, energy, etc…) and has the potential to radically transform countless embedded transactional and data sharing processes.  Amongst other topics, this section will explore enterprise use cases and dig deeper into the core constructs of permission-based Ethereum blockchain implementations.
