Understanding the Age of Blockchains

Bitcoin

Blockchains are significant because at their core, they represent a radical shift from trust in institutions and people into trust in transparent processes, math, code, and decentralized systems. Blockchains will impact the distribution of value in the way that the internet impacted the distribution of information. The implications are vast for business, society, and government both in terms of disintermediation of existing third parties and new avenues for value creation. 

As blockchain-enabled solutions become more prevalent, customer expectations will change. This session will arm with you an understanding of the new paradigm and offer you concrete suggestions for what you can do to ready your organization and yourself.

Finally, billions of devices that are coming will share information with each other and pay/get compensated for doing so at the micro-transaction level. The volume of transactions demands an "Internet-friendly" way of making payments. Blockchain-based cryptocurrencies make the most sense. Your smart watch isn't going to make a credit card payment to a charging station for 2 cents worth of power, but a blockchain-based system can and will.
