Blockchain: From Imagination to Realization


How far can your imagination take you? Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology opens the way for trustless, scalable systems that can change the world. We have all seen ICOs launched without a real problem to solve, or even a workable business model. Success comes when decision makers dare to dream beyond a pain point that has blocked their way, and developers realize the vision. This panel combines working case studies, software engineering experience, strategic innovation, and a sci-fi writer’s imagination. It aims to demonstrate how this emerging technology can turn fiction to fact and dreams to reality. It explores the balance between cutting edge blockchain and tried and tested software, and reflects on how the rush for magic internet money colors business decision making.
