This month in Startup Grind communities across the nation, audiences are listening to experts in all things cryptocurrency and blockchain.

To oversimplify a bit, blockchain is a digital ledger or record-keeping technology stored across a vast network of computers, meant to be impervious to hacking or alteration. It has served as the backbone of the bitcoin cryptocurrency.

Recently, Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed legislation recognizing the use of blockchain technology to save and secure electronic records in an array of industries, from financial services to supply chain management, real estate and health care.
