Corporates Embracing Crypto

In its infancy, crypto currency can be a dirty word in the minds of enterprise leaders. Riddled with connotations of black markets and idioms of ‘blockchain not bitcoin’ in offices globally. Since then, decentralized, public ledgers have continued to capture the mind of developers while 59% of executives view the technology as being an existential threat to their business. In this talk we’ll cover how enterprises are becoming comfortable with cryptocurrency and public ledgers to fend off disruption and fuel innovation.

John will host a networking session for the Blockchain Expo Community in “Unconference” format.

Come gather, make connections & then head over to the Networking Party at 6pm.

There are only 2-rules to “Unconference”:

  1. Nobody is giving a presentation – unconference sessions are all about conversations;
  2. If a session doesn’t inspire attendees & they are not contributing, they should get up & find a different one.
