Blockchain Unchained Masterclass [1-Day]





Practical & hands-on Blockchain Unchained Masterclass

In alignment with Trifork's vision to inspire and advice on cutting-edge technology, we’ve decided to collaborate with Chainalysis, who is a pioneer in the utilization of Blockchain, to create a one-day hands-on Masterclass: The “Blockchain" Unchained.  A blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a continuously-growing list of data records hardened against tampering and revision. It consists of data structure blocks, which hold exclusively data in initial blockchain implementations, and both data and programs in some of the more recent implementations. With each block holding batches of individual transactions and the results of any blockchain executables.* But what is all the fuss about? Where and how can you use it in your business? How can you implement Blockchain? This hands on practical Masterclass will introduce you to the concepts behind Blockchain – asymmetric keys, hash functions, consensus algorithms and peer-to-peer networks.

Masterclass content

This one day masterclass is hands-on with the Blockchain. Understanding and working with Blockchain is becoming a crucial component in innovating and developing business. Providing a deep technical insight valuable for anyone working with software development. In addition you will get an overview of the current and emerging implementations.

The Masterclass is a collaboration between Trifork and Chainalysis, who has developed a groundbreaking algorithm for tracking transactions and is a pioneer in the field of Blockchain. Blockchain is used by banks, e.g. Barclays or UBS, NASDAQ, MasterCard and leading fintech companies active in the blockchain space, regulators as well as law enforcement agencies worldwide. Based on real case work you will use your own business ideas for the day, and implement simple prototypes to get feedback on.
