Session Description

By now most know that the blockchain concept isn’t limited to bitcoin; and in fact, it isn’t limited to the financial services industry.  Loyalty programs, energy systems, and data sharing in the healthcare industry are just a few of the areas where companies are experimenting with the technology.

Questions that will be discussed:

  • To blockchain or to not blockchain – that’s the question. Or how to know when and where to use blockchain
  • What are the lessons learned across industries and how to avoid those pitfalls again?
  • Why you cannot go after blockchain on your own, or the need for consortia
  • How would these solutions work and what might financial services learn from them?
