Description

Ever wondered what this "blockchain" business is about, but could never wrap your head around it? Come join Blockchain Chicago, the Polsky Center, and Deji Jimoh from WealthBlock.ai for your opportunity to learn the answers, and relevance, of the following questions:

1. What is a "blockchain"?

2. What is "Ethereum"?

3. What is a "smart contract"?

By the end of the event, not only will you increase your knowledge on the esoteric landscape of blockchain technology, but you will be able to say that you made a code and put it on a blockchain. You'll be a god among your peers. Food will be provided.

**This event is for undergraduate students at the University of Chicago.
