Blockchain Growing Pains

Reality versus expectations

Gartner puts Blockchain on top of the hype cycle – at the peak of inflated expectations. Right now, every problem in every industry can be fixed with Blockchain technology! Is it a matter of belief? We will investigate the growing pains of the Blockchain, what can go wrong, and what we should question. Industry analyst David Birch wooed the audience in 2016 with a talk about Identity & the Blockchain. He returns to the event in 2017 with a keynote, titled “Blockchain is not a technology, it’s a religion”.

Hot issues

Other topics on the agenda for the 2017 event: the governance issues in the public bitcoin blockchain which are reaching boiling temperature with the coming core and unlimited fork and the aftermath of the Etherium fork. The rise of the private blockchains in fintech, insurance, energy, government and other industries.  The decisions main players in this field take now will decide our future paths. Long time Blockchain Entrepreneur and investor Marc van der Chijs, founder of Global Data Chain, will share his analysis of industry developments.

Private versus Public debate

Will public Blockchain technology lead, or are private Blockchain initiatives more likely to prevail? Will the corporate world take the lead or is innovation more likely to come from government or public initiatives? What role does economic uncertainty play?

Case studies

The blockchain is the basis for a new trust paradigm, which will affect processes in a wide range of industries. From banking, insurance and credit ratings, to manufacturing networks and energy markets, from tracking and tracing of copyrighted materials, to connected cars and secure health records, in all these areas the blockchain will be a catalyst for the creation of new decentralized applications.  We will take a close look at practical examples already in place.
