Blockchain technology has the potential to transform businesses and entire industries.
And the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin is at the forefront of this emerging technology with its newly launched Blockchain Initiative.
UT Austin is participating in a new program focused on blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and digital payments. Ripple, a distributed ledger currency exchange company, is providing the financial backing for the program. UT Austin is among 17 academic recipients worldwide selected for Ripple’s $50 million blockchain research program.
Silicon Hills News recently sat down with Cesare Fracassi, a McCombs associate professor of finance and the Blockchain Initiative’s director, to talk about blockchain technology and the new program on the Ideas to Invoices podcast.
