Blockchain for Enterprise – Day 1

Blockchain technology is starting to encourage a direct value exchange over the internet.

It is fast approaching an inflection point where enterprise and greater mainstream adoption will ensue. As a result of the considerable structural advantages blockchain technology is expected to have significant impact on industries including payments, finance, insurance, energy, IoT, exchanges, music and many more. This track analyses just these impacts looking at various industries and the challenges and opportunities that blockchain will present to them.
