Discover a technology that can revolutionize the world economy

The world is changing with Blockchain.

The CIO Association of Canada (CIOCAN) has established a Research Partnership with RedMobile and their initiative, “TransformationWorx,” that will provide enterprise professional and executive development programs in high-demand and emerging areas of Business Digital Transformation and Blockchain Technologies.

Blockchain is a network of many distributed parties who verify transactions. This eliminates the need for central authority, and builds trust in the network since all the parties can interact with each other. The information itself is unchangeable once it is recorded. Blockchain may facilitate collaboration and tracking of all kinds of transactions and interactions.
