Basics of Blockchain Technology
Blockchain technology: a database system in which the information is verifyable because this data is created by a consensus and the history of the data logged. Brian Wentzloff is CTO of SavvyPCI and a partner in Blockchain Devs Consulting, which specializes in smart contracts and other blockchain-related technology. He's been evangelizing Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and smart contracts since 2009.

Impacts of Blockchain on the legal professions
In this module, we'll go through key basics that every smart contract must have to earn its smart stripes. All in a class setting where you get to re-live first year contracts, taught by a real-life professor. If you're not excited yet, you will be by the time the 90 minutes are through. Led by Boris Mamlyuk, current law faculty at the University of Memphis and current chief executive at CleanApp, a Memphis non-profit dedicated to improving global hazard reporting technologies.
