Blockchain beyond Bitcoin
Let’s remember that the Blockchain technology has more uses than crypto and Bitcoin. The economic and financial sector was the first in which the Blockchain technology reflected its many advantages.
In this context, it is the security, speed and decentralization offered by this technology that far surpasses any form of money transfer today, so the revolution that this digital currency has achieved in the economy and banking is not just a fad, it is basically the future of money today. But, blockchain technology is already being exploited in other areas of the industry beyond finance, and although it is a relatively incipient and developing technology, it is generating numerous challenges for the legal sector.
For this reason, the objective of the initiative is to deepen, generate debate and propose solutions to the aforementioned challenges, and with this, to broaden the state of science in this area, and to place Zaragoza as the headquarters of one of the main pioneers of blockchain technology in the legal sector within the country.
