From basic principles to use cases

Talks will stretch from introducing basic principles over startup presentations to potential future and current use cases of the blockchain technology, for example in supply chain management or on e-government and digital identity.
Why you should spend your time on this technology: a few opinions from our experts
“The idea of a realiable worldwide cross company tracking and tracing of goods and products is so fascinating. It has to be one of the ancient ideas in supply chain management and logistics - and now with Blockchain we might be able to do just that.”
“Through my work and research with blockchain I know of the large benefits but also the devastating risks using the technology brings, and it is therefore crucial that as many people as possible are on board to discuss its future. It’s a highly interdisciplinary field because it has the potential to affect so many different aspects of our private and civil lives.”
“Blockchain is a technology which enables everyone to take matters into their own hands - financially and otherwise. Knowing what it can do empowers.”
“Blockchain is fascinating because it uses human behaviour and game theory to solve a technological problem: how to transfer value or information in a distributed network.”
