Blockchain and your business

Cleveland leaders are organizing around a new initiative to transform and enhance our regional economy through blockchain.  Blockchain technologies work as a linked list of digitized information in blocks, with each block recording transactions and linked in a chronological chain like a 20th century ledger.  The local effort, referred to as BlockLandis focused on how to reposition Cleveland on the cutting edge of technological advancement. A Cleveland conference, Blockland Solutions, has been planned for December 1-4, 2018. In the meantime, find out if your company is eligible to access FREE research from the Blockchain Research Institute, courtesy of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, the Unify Project, and Jumpstart.
