The Business of Blockchain

Who has not heard about Bitcoin or Initial Coin Offerings? Beyond the noise and the buzzwords, blockchain has already proven its value over the last years. Sometimes considered as “a solution looking for a problem” by its detractors, blockchain remains one of the most promising technologies in a world looking for more privacy, security and transparency.

As a technology enabling peer-to-peer, decentralized transactions, the potential use cases of blockchain technology are countless and still emerging. Blockchain may well help you soon solve some specific business problems inside and outside of your organization.

In this workshop, our speakers will explore and discuss the economics of blockchain, the underlying business opportunities and the specific challenges pertaining to the development of blockchain products.
