The CHATECH December Connect event featured a dynamic panel discussion on Blockchain technology - what it is, why it matters, and how it impacts or will impact business in the future. This panel discussion was definitely one of the most practical conversations we've heard on Blockchain to date.

These respected experts talked about some real Blockchain use cases, things that are currently happening in the market with Blockchain, challenges to adoption, and what the potential benefits are. Most importantly, they do an amazing job of explaining the basics of how the technology works.

Like most emerging technologies, Blockchain is shrouded in mystery and confusion outside of the few who are actively working with it. Why is it that this technology is so misunderstood? What industries will find the biggest gain in using the technology?
