When a DLT is Secure, Fair and Fast, What Will You Build?
- Distributed ledger technology holds great promise, but to date, adoption has been stymied by the speed of first generation ledgers, which function on the order of seven transactions per second.
- But if distributed ledgers could conduct transactions as fast or faster than the VISA network, and charge a fraction of a penny for each, what are the possibilities? From a music industry project from Matt Sorum (Guns N Roses), to MachineZone (one of the largest gaming companies), to Open VMS (the OS that powers critical infrastructure like nuclear power plants & stock markets), people are finding new uses for next generation distributed ledgers, which were not possible with early blockchain and other DLTs.
- When transactions are lightning fast, what will you build?

Keynote – Blockchain and smart contracts as a part of eSports and Gaming ecosystem
A short report on Gaming and e-Sports markets and trends. Right now e-Sports is one the hottest markets on a planet, but it’s still in “My Space era in early 2000”. It has a lot of challenges on the road to become the biggest Sport on a planet. eSports became the global phenomenon with arising of live broadcasting platforms and broadcasting studios. But what will be the second and the most important wave to push eSports forward? With unlocking of blockchain and smart-contracts technology, we have unique opportunity to answer this question.

Case Study – Gospel – The First Practical Enterprise Application of Blockchain
- Existing siloed approaches to handling sensitive corporate and personal data are broken. Insecure workarounds and shadow IT have proliferated as infrastructures have decentralised.
- Gospel uses private distributed ledger technology to secure enterprise data, and provides permissioned access to internal and external third parties on a ‘need to know’ basis, delivering an immutable record of all data transactions – ending speculative data sharing, eliminating data breaches, and complying with tough new global personal data legislation.
- Gospel offers a completely new way of accessing and controlling corporate and personal data – technology described by IDC as “the first practical enterprise application of blockchain”
