10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Educational Session 1.2: On our Radar:  Potential Blockchain Applications for Associations  - Tarpon Point Ballroom 4

Originally developed as a decentralized, digitized and public ledger for the virtual currency Bitcoin, Blockchain technology creates a permanent, traceable public record through distributed ledger technology (DLT).  Each new “block” is inserted into the blockchain as a permanent database, in chronological order, and contains authorship markers, enabling verification across a community.

While developed as an accounting system for Bitcoin, Blockchain technology could be leveraged for many distributed systems that rely on collaboration and verification.   Join us as a panel of experts, led by Kevin Marvel, explore the implications of blockchain technology in the non-profit sector, from transparent finances, to facilitating expertise databases, to peer-review and publishing.
