A Joint Panel Discussion by Crescent Crypto Asset Management and MIMIR Blockchain Solutions
This discussion explored the Disruption that Blockchain technology is facilitating and the ways cryptocurrencies are helping to shape modern business. This panel also examined the challenges that still need to be overcome, and the opportunities for both blockchain and cryptocurrencies. These speakers also examined what mining is, how investing in crypto is taking place, what jobs may come out of the blockchain/crypto revolution, and why the next Facebook, Twitter or Google will be built on a blockchain.
