The Next Killer Application on Blockchain

The Next Killer Application on Blockchain
Recording: The Next Killer Application on Blockchain, Mar 16, 2019


Julian Hosp


Blockchain Technology has been all over the media and we have heard of its past killer applications such as Bitcoin as the most popular cryptocurrency. In 2018 we experienced the same "crypto winter" as a few year prior, when Bitcoin tanked from 1200 to 250 Usd. Back then, the "next killer blockchain app" Ethereum as a decentralized computer with its smart contracts pulled the entire ecosystem out of a slump. Now in 2019 we are asking, which will be the next killer application on the blockchain, that could get the same done. We hear about candidates such as security tokens, stable coins and IOT. Internationally renown Blockchain expert Dr. Julian Hosp will dig deeper, clean up with myths and show, that probably none of these will bring the needed innovation. His candidate? Collectibles.
