Wharton Lifelong Learning, in partnership with the Wharton Club of Atlanta, is pleased to present an evening with Professor Kevin Werbach. 

A decade after the publication of the Bitcoin whitepaper, blockchain and cryptocurrencies remain wildly misunderstood. In an era when conventional trust is collapsing, the blockchain offers powerful new opportunities — but also creates serious new risks. Wharton professor Kevin Werbach, author of the new book "The Blockchain and the New Architecture of Trust," offers a balanced analysis of blockchain’s true potential, as well as its limitations and what it will take to overcome them. He maps out the often-confusing landscape and shows how the path to trustworthy blockchains and crypto assets surprisingly runs through law, regulation, and governance.
