Livestream this keynote here!
As blockchain becomes mainstream, the public often develops incorrect ideas about it—much is understated as well as overstated.
In this panel, we will discuss the biggest misconceptions about blockchain, as well as the most common pitfalls that developers and product managers fall into. In order to avoid pitfalls, we have to unlearn behaviors that get us there in the first place. How can we change our mentality to avoid those holes? Attendees are invited to join the conversation about how we can propel these ideas into action.
Last but not least, the panelists will exchange views on the bad habits we must unlearn when approaching blockchain. Are there any common practices that are holding us back from reaching the full potential that blockchain has to offer? What do we need to get started implementing the blockchain, and how can we rally our developers and product managers on board? What will you do with blockchain technology tomorrow, and the tomorrow after that? All these questions will be answered during the panel.
