In this presentation, the audience will explore the basics of blockchain technology, coupled with the specific implications for records and information governance professions. Specifically, the presentation will cover:

- How a blockchain is basically an electronic ledger (register) of digital records, events, or transactions akin to a financial ledger except authenticated and maintained through a “distributed” or “shared” network of participants using a group consensus protocol (multiple users);
- How blockchain is already in use in the private sector through virtual currency known as Bitcoin;
