Peter Kirby, president of Factom, will talk at Bitcoin Wednesday #20 about what makes his service valuable. His presentation will be “Factom: Securing the World’s Records with Blockchain Technology“.
One of the most exciting recent examples of the non-financial applications of Bitcoin technology, Factom was recently covered by the Wall Street Journal. Factom provides a data layer for the blockchain that allows any software application to create a permanent, verifiable system of record.
Central to nearly every business problem is the challenge of record-keeping. Making the system by which information is kept transparent, distributed and tamper proof is one of the most important ideas in blockchain technology.
Peter is based in Austin, Texas and has ten years experience building companies in real estate, finance, consumer products, computer hardware and blockchain technology. He is getting married in a few weeks and welcomes suggestions on best man gifts, honeymoon plans, and heart-warming speeches that embarass his mother.
