Beyond the ICO: How to create total value with blockchain
How far can Blockchain go and what is next? In this session, Barbara Mellish shares her insights, learnings and future aspirations to achieve total value in finance in Blockchain.
With so much Media attention on the focus of the rise (and falls) of cryptocurrency valuations, it is easy to lose sight of the wider picture of the blockchain opportunity. Add to that the uncoordinated nature of the non-centralized model and the growing number of scams and mismanagement scandals and the result becomes a very fragmented market.
We all intuitively know that appropriate use of Blockchain technology does have real potential to make a change to how we operate cross-border and within societal groups, bypassing middle layers and removing the trusted center. The question is how far can Blockchain go and what is next?
This keynote features real live blockchain applications which are making that change, including vibrant (global) communities transacting with their values, provenance of product research, impact investment and institutional consultancy research and advise. Having had more than six years in the research and application of the movement of non-financial values, and two years in blockchain applications, Barbara Mellish shares her insights, learnings and future aspirations to achieve total value in finance in Blockchain.
