About the event

Blockchain Forum 2018 – The Next WaveWhat is BlockChain?

A continuously list of growing records, called Blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography. An open distributed ledger that can record transactions efficiently, in a verifiable and permanent way.

BlockChains are secure by design – a distributed computing system. By storing data across its network, the Bockchain eliminates risks by data being stored or held centrally. This makes it suitable for BlockChains to record events, transaction processing, voting, food traceability, identity management etc.

Importance of BlockChain:

BlockChain and Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are taking the world by imagination and are growing at an ever-increasing pace.

BlockChain is among the most significant tech findings of the 21st century and curiosity around this subject continues to grow more and more.

This forum will bring together experts who will discuss opportunities, challenges and innovations that are shaping this ‘New Wave’.

While few central banks, in countries such as India, China, US, Sweden, Singapore, South Africa and the UK are studying the issuance of a Central Bank Issued Crytocurrency, none have done thus far. Blockchain promises to bring significant efficiencies to global supply chains, financial transactions, asset ledgers and de centralized social networking.

2018 is believed to pave the path for BlockChain to align with other emerging technologies such as Machine Learning, AI, Security, Internet of Things.

Why attend?

Our aim is to educate and evolve with the eco system. Creating collaboration opportunities about the latest trends in the space of cryptocurrency  and BlockChain. With the lineup of industry experts we bring together perspectives across different industries, delve on the latest happenings, and discuss used cases.

We have created an ideal platform for practitioners and industry experts to meet, exchange ideas and collaborate.
