Blockchain is not just about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin; this technology has started to move into all kinds of sectors, from real estate to healthcare – and now journalism.
While the journalism community is slowly starting to take note of blockchain, many still use it as a bit of a buzzword without knowing 100 per cent sure what it actually means.
So how does blockchain work and why should journalists care? Join us at newsrewired on 6 March 2019, and learn more about this technology from top experts.
