Take 3, Scene 23: The Influence and Evolution of Blockchain

Michael Lisse and Derek Tiffany join us in the studio for this episode of Take 3 to talk about the influence and evolution of blockchain in the financial industry and beyond. Michael joins us ahead of the Consensus Summit in New York City, which is a conference dedicated to blockchain technology and what is happening in the blockchain industry.

Blockchain is a secure distributed ledger database that is used and shared by all nodes, or blocks in the blockchain network. Information that is stored and distributed through the blockchain network is completely secure and cannot be retroactively altered. All of the blocks run on the same software and continuously talk to each other to validate it.
