Disruptions in technology are often seen as something that only startups and R&D can manipulate into shiny products, but in the case of Blockchain, we might want to rethink that assumption.
Blockchain as a technology is more and more being seen as a tool to be used to enhance existing services due to its key outcome - trust in record keeping.
Speakers will cover –
- Blockchain for social impact
- Implications of crypto-currencies on legal and financial job markets
- Blockchain for specialised data management
- Fundamental misconceptions of Blockchain and crypto-currencies
In this session we will take the time to look at how features of Blockchain technology may be able to enhance that trust to increase the value of your products and services.
