Keynote:  Alex Linebrink, CEO, Passage

Topic:  Building a Better Future with the Blockchain: in Travel and Beyond!

You've heard about "the blockchain" everywhere. You've heard it's making people rich through Bitcoin, it's being used to change the way we access money, and it could have even farther-reaching implications. But what exactly is "the blockchain" and how does it affect the world we live in right now?
