Blockchain: What is it and How Does it Work?

Wednesday, November 3, 2021 | 5:00 - 6:30 PM CT

Blockchain and the technologies that rely upon it are shaking up established industries – first banking with cryptocurrencies and now the art world with “non-fungible tokens” (NFTs). Once limited to a small group of hardcore tech enthusiasts, blockchain has now burst into the mainstream and is being adopted on a wide scale. But even with its rapid spread, most have only a vague understanding of how blockchain works and what it can do.

In this presentation, Fish & Richardson patent attorney Kenneth Hoover will discuss the basics of blockchain and how it works, including:

  • What are blockchains, cryptocurrency, and NFTs?
  • Cryptocurrency misconceptions
  • How blockchain technology works
  • Possible and existing uses for blockchain and NFTs
  • Patent trends for blockchain technology
  • Copyrights and NFTs as digital art
