Blockchain: The Technology Most Likely to Change the World

Blockchain is poised to transform every industry, redefining the ways in which we transact online, share ideas and manage our data and workflows. Beyond what we might understand is the new digital currency for payments and NFT marketplaces, blockchain applications are being used for so much more. Decreasing information management complexities and costs, establishing new levels of transparency and trust, Blockchain is becoming the new medium for collaboration, integrity and self-sovereignty. Applications range from the sharing of medical data, supply chain and logistics monitoring, music royalty tracking, global financial transactions, intellectual property and personal identity security. The DNA of impact is global. While we have seen many cryptocurrency companies soar in value, is it hype? Or are we in fact standing on the precipice of the next generation of the internet?

In this session, we will explore the fundamentals of Blockchain and some of the applications that are profoundly transforming business, government and society, setting the stage for the next generation of a value-driven internet.
