About this event

Join Tech Yukon for this in-person beginner workshop on blockchain technology. This is the workshop for you if you’ve ever had any of the following questions:

  • What is a blockchain?
  • How is it different from a database?
  • How can bitcoin be “mined”?
  • Where is bitcoin stored?
  • Why does bitcoin use so much energy?
  • What are some of the differences between the top cryptocurrencies?
  • What is a decentralized application?
  • What is Web3, DeFi or NFTs?

We’ll cover topics such as consensus, digital signatures, hashing, and smart contracts to give you an understanding of what’s happening underneath the hood. We’ll also delve into some use-cases for decentralized technology along with its strengths and weaknesses. No prior knowledge is required, and everyone is welcome.
