Building Better Futures on Blockchains
May 11, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
Blockchains, blockchains, everywhere – when and where do their use actually make sense ? At this event we distinguished blind hype from revolutionary use cases, speculate what we can realistically hope for in a best case deployment scenario, and how to avoid harmful adaptation and regulation of this promising technology. Apart from currencies, we discuss its interaction with other disruptive technologies like AI, its power as social force, and its ecosystem as role model for security.
After the panel and Q&A, you’re invited to join the speakers’ breakout sessions on their topic of expertise.
