Blockchain is a developing platform for the internet of tomorrow. It is much more than a platform focused on financial technology applications and currency, it transverses almost all verticals. While it is true, that Blockchain is not a tool to serve all applications and solve all problems, Blockchain holds promises.
As widespread attention and interest continue to garner around this emerging technology field, it important to ask two questions: What is the state of the technology today? Where is the technology headed? Accordingly, the 2019 IEEE Global Blockchain Summit will bring together thought leaders, decision-makers, and technologists to discuss the challenges and opportunities of blockchain technology. Attendees from academia, government, and industry will present on various topics including the current technology landscape, applications, use cases, policy, and regulations to help instill providence tracking functionality into vital internet applications reliant on trusted immutable data. As a decentralized, secure and resilient architecture Blockchain is uniquely positioned to provide these services.
