In this webinar David Gerard, author of Attack of the 50 Foot Blockchain, presents on ‘The basics of blockchain and bitcoin’. After the presentation, Ray Poynter and David discuss the implications for blockchain in market research, and take questions from the online audience.
Blockchain is fast becoming the most hyped technology in a wide range of business sectors, including banking, elections, cybersecurity, and (of course) market research. The joy of the advocates is only matched by the outraged howls of those who fear that the disaster of bitcoin will be re-written across many industries under the guise of blockchain.
So, if you are unsure about what blockchain is and whether market research should be developing blockchain applications, this is the webinar for you.
