Blockchain: This Changes Everything! (Or Does It?)

The blockchain is radically transforming the way we store information and interact globally. Blockchain technology allows people to establish high levels of trust in low-trust environments, from tracking cross-country digital payments through applications like Bitcoin, to smart contracts, to device-to-device payments, and ultimately, an Internet of Value. The opportunities with blockchain are seemingly limitless. In this panel session, panelists will provide an overview of blockchain technology and debate where blockchain will play a role in the future. They will also explore how soon consumers can expect to see blockchain in daily life through things like payments or smart contracts.
