Future Role of Blockchains in All Fields of Business Activities
Thursday, 12th of April 2018
Plenary session 2: The Future of Business Communication
Blockchain is trust. People think that Blockchain is the tool for money launderers and drug lords. Actually, blockchain does not have value as such. Blockchain is not a currency, it is a technology. People also think that Blockchain is to facilitate financial transactions. No! That is just an application. The presentation will provide blockchain applications in a variety of industries and showcase how can a blockchain system bring trust and transparency to a modern business or government.
