About the Event
The Cyprus Blockchain Technologies Ltd. is a non-profit organisation established as a collaboration among academic institutions, including University College London Centre for Blockchain Technologies (UCL CBT) and Cyprus International Institute of Management (CIIM), local regulators, financial institutions and banks, as well as other technology associations and companies. The aim of the centre is to conduct research as well as organise transfer of knowledge sessions and executive education on Blockchain technologies by bringing prominent academics and professionals from leading organisations from around the world. This is the Grand Launching event of our centre. You are cordially invited to attend.
Blockchain is a decentralised, global public distributed ledger or database running on millions of devices, where not just information but anything of value – money, titles, music, art, scientific discoveries, intellectual property, and even votes – can be transferred and stored privately and securely. Trust is established through mass collaboration and a clever code that makes Blockchain withstand modification, fraud or other types of attacks. Blockchain ensures integrity and transparency and has big implications for business and the corporation.
