The Blockchain 101 session covered the fundamentals of blockchain technology, the benefits of using this technology, the difference between "crypto" and blockchain. The speaker provided insights into why the world of finance is eager to adopt it - to create liquidity and automation.
With blockchains popularity, many companies are now using blockchain technology, including some of the largest banks, retailers like Walmart, insurance companies (i.e. MetLife), healthcare providers (i.e. Pfizer and the CDC), as well as many providing governmental services. The list rapidly expands as the adoption accelerates.
