This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

Introduction to Blockchain Technology (Cantonese Speaker)
Jul 20 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

科技對各行各業影響非常之大,就連被譽為百業之母的金融銀行業,近年亦因為互聯網金融(Fintech)的流行,而出現翻天覆地的改變。

近年,最備受廣泛關注的必定是區塊鏈 (Blockchain) 技術,而今年政府的施政報告及財政預算案亦有大篇幅提及。

什麼是區塊鏈 (Blockchain)  ?

區塊鏈 (Blockchain) 是一種共享式公共總帳,採分布式分類帳(Distributed Ledger)技術,將資料散布於各區塊資料而無法被單一實體掌控,使交易資料具備安全、透明、可永久記錄等特性,意即透過去中心化的方式集體維護一個可靠數據資料庫的技術方案。

區塊鏈技術是由密碼學、數學、演算法及經濟模型所組成,結合 P2P,並採用分散式共識演算法,來解決傳統分散式資料庫的同步問題,是整合跨領域技術的一項基礎建設。

數位貨幣是區塊鏈技術的具體應用,運作原理是由數個節點組成一個網路,當某一個節點發起一筆交易時,會將此需求傳遞給其他節點,所有節點皆可以透過共識演算法決定誰可以驗證這筆交易。在這項應用領域中,最早崛起且最為普及的為 2008 年出現的比特幣,不依靠特定貨幣機構發行,通過特定演算法的大量計算產生。由網路透過發行量每 4 年減半的方式,持續增加貨幣供給,無法偽造,總發行量穩定在 2100 萬個。

在區域發展方面,以目前全球的發展狀況,區塊鏈投資主要集中在北美、歐洲,亞洲排名第三,並且以中國為主。
