Blockchain 2018 – Where are we today?
by Ingo Rammer, co-founder and managing director of Thinktecture AG
Tuesday, November 20, 2018
09:00 – 09:45 CET
In this keynote session, Ingo summarizes the current state of the art and the minimum set of questions every project needs to ask itself before choosing blockchain technologies. He’ll discuss the underlying landscape of public and private blockchain tools, which you’ll hear about throughout the conference. You’ll hear about the ecologic and economic impact of different consensus algorithms (and why the often publicized “mining cost” is not relevant in most business projects) and why the creation of a private blockchain network is less a technical question and more a question of governance models. You’ll leave with a technological roadmap on which you can base your session selection for the remaining days of the conference.

State of the art – Where does the German blockchain ecosystem stand?
Where does the German blockchain ecosystem stand on the international scene? What opportunities does this technology offer not only to startups but also to medium-sized businesses? What can and should politicians do to ensure that Germany does not miss the boat? These and other questions will be discussed by our blockchain experts in an interdisciplinary panel. Before we dive into this conversation, attendees will be presented with the results of a recent study by BTC-ECHO and BlockState on the German blockchain ecosystem; the figures will help lead the discussion. The audience is warmly invited to ask questions and join the discussion.
