About This Webinar 

The number of connected devices that will be in use is estimated to reach 75 billion by 2025. From tiny sensors on roads and bridges to wearable electronics, mobile phones, and more. Every day the world is becoming more and more interconnected, with all of it generating valuable data and enabling hundreds of millions of financial transactions. The IOTA DLT has been developed to enable secure data and financial communications between this interconnected IoT, minimizing risk and advancing digital infrastructure with trust, integrity and verifiability built in. We’ll talk about the IOTA protocol and Foundation, going into detail on how it is being used today in mobility, automotive, and connected infrastructure projects to enable a transparent, secure and trusted mechanism for managing data and value at scale.

What is the North Carolina Blockchain Initiative?

On July 2nd 2019, Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest announced the formation of the North Carolina Blockchain Initiative (NCBI). A strategic component of NCBI is to study, examine, and evaluate the unique attributes and use-cases of blockchain technology, virtual assets, smart contracts and digital tokens with an ultimate goal of promoting opportunities for economic growth, cost efficiencies and strengthening North Carolina as a leader in technological innovation.

The NCBI is pleased to launch a webinar series. The goal of this webinar is to provide introductory information about blockchain technology, and how this emerging technology may have an impact on the lives of North Carolina citizens and beyond.
