Course Description:

New applications for blockchain technology are poised to entirely disrupt the media and entertainment industry and challenge the world’s biggest centralized cloud providers, such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Google. No one knows this better than CNET founder and famed entrepreneur, Halsey Minor, who’s at the forefront of this innovation.

In this session, Minor will discuss the latest breakthroughs, challenges, and opportunities in emerging blockchain technology and provide invaluable insights into how this will affect content creators and video services around the world.
