Beyond the buzzwords, Blockchain is rapidly emerging as one of the biggest disruptors to industry from finance and supply chain/logistics to cybersecurity and financial inclusion. Its technology promises to facilitate secure, seamless trade, and real-time visibility of inventory and liquidity. What are the real use cases and milestones today? What is actually behind announcements like BHP Billiton's project with BlockApps/Ethereum to manage drilling samples, Walmart's project on pork safety, and Maersk's project with Hyperledger to manage global shipping?
What are the risks and opportunities for enhanced trade finance at both the local and global levels brought about by Blockchain technology, and when will real benefits be harvested?
Please join us for what promises to be a robust presentation and discussion.
Mike Benner, Darren McKellin, Co-Chairs
