Crack The Code!
SOSA is looking to break the crypto code this summer!
When bitcoins hit the scene, an associated technology also got quite a bit of attention – BLOCKCHAIN! Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies are digital currencies, and blockchain is the technology that keeps records of all the exchanges.
Simply put, blockchain is like a ledger, with important features to push the envelope on security, decentralization, and transparency – a peer-to-peer network manages the blockchain, transactions can be viewed by everyone, and they can’t be changed or reversed. This makes them tamper free.
Blockchain has penetrated many markets since bitcoin – it is now used by many businesses to record transactions, track assets, and automate workflow. This includes the supply chain, healthcare, financial services, and oil and gas - so it impacts us in many ways!
SOSA welcomes students from ages 8-18 in July for this exciting opportunity for active learning on crypto and blockchain. Who do you know that wants to break the crypto code?? Follow Society for Scientific Advancement on LinkedIn, Instagram, or Facebook for clues!
