Session: Digital Innovation in the Blockchain Age
With blockchain, we can imagine a world in which contracts are embedded in digital code and stored in transparent, shared databases, where they are protected from deletion, tampering, and revision. The technology at the heart of Bitcoin and other virtual currencies, blockchain is an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way. But a true blockchain-led transformation of business and government is still many years away, though. Please join Stefano Tempesta in this session for an open conversation on the potential to create new foundations for our economic and social systems based on trust, where every agreement, every process and every payment would have a digital record and signature that could be identified, validated, stored, and shared. Intermediaries may no longer be necessary. Individuals, organizations and machines would freely transact and interact with one another with little friction.
