Blockchain for Radical Transparency

In the post-truth era, consumers are increasingly skeptical about their relationship with brands and as a result, demanding an unprecedented level of information and access. Beyond the buzz, blockchain is set to become one of the most important technologies required for meeting such expectations; bonding customers and brands together in the process. On this panel, experts from IBM, H&M and De Beers will discuss how blockchain is allowing them to future-proof their supply chains and prepare for a landscape where transparency is the new norm.
