Session Description

Big business--like that of big banks and tech giants--will always drive innovation, and the rise of blockchain-based smart contracts turns blockchain into a middleman to execute all manner of complex business deals, legal agreements and automated exchanges of data. Companies such as Microsoft and IBM are using their cloud infrastructure to build custom (or “private”) blockchains for customers. Further, blockchain “consortiums” are proliferating that engage in blockchain standard-setting activities, partner with startups and experiment with their own use cases. What problems are they solving? When are private blockchains the most applicable technology? Hear some of the key participants in these cross-industry partnerships discuss how collaboration is shaping the future of blockchain technology.
