Why blockchain disrupts all industries

Elena Karafiloski presents use cases in health & education

Blockchain is disrupting all industries, since it is a general purpose technology. At the Blockchain Forum in Zürich at the end of March, our expert Elena Karafiloski presented use cases in health and education.
