Summary

In the debut episode of The Memo's video series Future Finance, Ben Goldsmith explores the mysterious world of Bitcoin's blockchain and how it all works.

That’s a real shame because blockchain has the potential to revolutionise not just finance, but any industry where data or information has to be safely and securely transferred.

So without further ado here’s Episode 1 of Future Finance: The Blockchain Explained (with cake):

Future Finance is presented by Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co and this month’s episode was kindly filmed at The Collective.
