Blockchain is the current hype in tech. People believe its impact in companies will be of the same magnitude as the event of internet. But, what is Blockchain itself? In this talk, you will discover a blockchain from scratch, using Scala, to understand its capabilities and limitations. That blockchain will be used to built a digital currency on top of it. And you will explore other possible uses of a blockchain.
