The Blockchain

The Blockchain and the Future of Everything

Stop for a moment and think about the future...

Big banks have grown bigger and more entrenched. Privacy exists only until the next hack. Credit card fraud is a fact of life. Many of the "legacy systems" once designed to make our lives easier and our economy more efficient are no longer up to the task. Yet there is a way past all this―a new kind of operating system with the potential to revolutionise vast swathes of our economy: the blockchain.

But what is the blockchain, and why is this the future of everything?

Join us on Wednesday 15 August 2018 to hear from author, educator, journalist and public speaker Michael Casey who will answer just that.

Michael will share a sweeping vision of how new technologies are empowering people, upending business models and radically redefining society, which perfectly intertwines with his own journey and how he ended up where he is today.

This special public lecture is hosted by Curtin University as part of National Science Week and our Alumni Innovator Series.
