How was your talk meaningful for Blockchain Expo attendees?
“Audience members learned how to use blockchain to simplify business interactions without adding hardware or more IT staff. They got a better idea of how big an impact this can have on their bottom line. This is the future. I showed them how to stay ahead of the curve and their competition.”
What specific tips or insights did attendees get?
“Attendees learned how to run complex interconnected business processes and services as easy as sending email. This included features like scalability on calculations, throughput and storage, distributed transactions, as well as compatibility with existing tech and legal practices. What’s more, they saw how they don’t need to add complex IT capacity in-house.”
Why did you decide to give this talk?
I’ve been working with decentralized decision making systems for the better part of 20 years. My point of view is that blockchain is all about enabling, rather than disrupting. We’re looking for a few partners in the areas of logistics (for supply chain) and energy grids (for smart cities.)”
