This one-day conference examining the technology, ethics, and impact of blockchains will allow you to meet pioneers in this emerging field, learn about the technology to gain business advantage, and separate fact from hype; what’s imminent from what’s far off.
Digital technologies let people who’ve never met do business across borders and continents in an instant. But how can they trust one another without relying on bureaucracy and middlemen? How can security, identity, and ownership be guaranteed while still operating at the speed of the Internet? Blockchains, or distributed ledgers, may provide the answer.
Companies, researchers, and governments are exploring how blockchains can secure trust without the need for middlemen or third parties. Leaders in a wide range of industries around the world are seeking to understand how distributed ledgers can help them operate more efficiently.
