Webinar - Crypto vs. Blockchain: How to Separate What's Real and What's Hype in the "Blockchain Revolution"


Wednesday, Jun 05, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:00am CDT


There is a lot of hype (and frankly a lot of nonsense) surrounding the so-called "blockchain revolution." But with firms like Fidelity, JPMorgan, and Facebook getting involved -- and institutions like Yale, Harvard, and MIT investing -- there must be something real there. In this session, Bitwise's Global Head of Research, Matt Hougan, will explore crypto, blockchain and everything in between, and provide you with a roadmap for how to consider, if and when, to make your first investment in the crypto/blockchain ecosystem.
