RTP 180: Blockchain



So, do you know what Blockchain is? Before you consult Google, check out this video for an explanation that is way better than ours…

They say it is distrupting the industry, and our speakers agree! Join leading experts from around The Triangle on March 15 to learn more about this hot topic.

Doors open at 5:00pm for networking, beer & popcorn. Show kicks off at 6:00pm.

This year, we’ve chosen four themes for RTP180: Science, Human Communications & Interactions, Technology and Economic Development. Each of our monthly topics will fall under one of these themes.
