    We've all heard of Bitcoin, the most widely known cryptocurrency, but what is the Blockchain technology behind it? Why is it considered so revolutionary and disruptive?  And why is international business so central to the applications on Blockchain, far beyond financial?   Ilya Tabakh, Kansas City scholar, entrepreneur, and Blockchain thought leader, will take us through where we are and where we are going!

    Ilya Tabakh

    CEO of Blockchain Productivity, Inc.

    Organizer of blockchainkc.org

    Come join us for breakfast on October's Fourth Friday to talk about Bitcoin blockchain with Ilya, a thought leader on this quickly changing technology, and its implications for international business.

    Free parking is available on site.

    The ITC is pleased to sponsor an engaging discussion on mistakes companies have made in importing and exporting. The benefits and the positive results about international trade are popular topics, but what happens when it goes wrong? 

    We will discuss real life stories of mistakes companies have made and how they responded. A local company wired $17.2M to a fake company, another shipped product to what they thought was an auto dealership in Russia (it was an apartment building), and what happened to a local company that missed the tariff deadline in China by 3 hours. Learn how companies dealt with missteps in fraud, commercial risks, credit, political, shipping and more.
