On December 21st, 2019, akaChain and LDI FPT Software are going to collaborate to organize the “Block Talk Series” workshop on the 4th floor, 3A building, at Duy Tan street, Cau Giay district, Hanoi. The workshop will focus on the power and application of blockchain technology in real life.
So what exactly is blockchain? What areas can it be applied to in real life? And why is it so compelling?
Blockchain is a technology that allows secure data transmission based on an extremely complex encryption system, similar to a company’s ledger, where cash is strictly monitored.
Previously, blockchain was associated with cryptocurrency investors, but various businesses and organizations recently are more interested in the practical and tangible applications of this technology. International Data Corporation (IDC) reported that the total value of blockchain investments by US companies and government reached $2.1 billion in 2018, doubled in 2017 and is expected to increase by $9.7 billion by 2021.
FPT Software established akaChain Business Unit (AKC) with the objective of developing core competencies related to blockchain platform in September 2018. Furthermore, FPT became a Technical Delivery Partner through the agreement of FPT with R3 Corda, the well-known blockchain service provider in the world. These achievements have shown the strategic orientation of the leading technology corporation in Vietnam before blockchain’s profound benefits.
To clarify the problems of blockchain technology applications, the “Block Talk Series” workshop will focus on answering, providing useful information to help attendants gain better understanding of the technology, promoting internal blockchain and connecting with the community outside the FPT Software.
At the workshop, Mr. Nguyen Van Long, an akaChain solution specialist of FPT Software, will be the keynote speaker of the workshop to give attendants insights of the blockchain technology, and the current activities of the akaChain Business Unit in technology applications that is increasingly popular in Vietnam.
