As the technology that underpins cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether evolves, the potential for blockchain to create a trusted way to exchange almost any item of value has become a talking point across multiple industries. The time has come for Canadian business leaders to take the next step by developing an action plan to test, evaluate and harness the power of blockchain in ways that will serve customers, citizens, their own team members and beyond.
Already, blockchain pilot projects are underway with major financial institutions, federal government agencies, supply chain firms, energy companies and even organizations in the arts. Research labs focusing on blockchain have launched at universities across the country. Entrepreneurs, meanwhile, have quickly used blockchain as the foundation for a wide range of startup ventures, developing new use cases for the technology.
Blockchain Summit 2019 will offer a day and a half to take stock of how the blockchain community is evolving in Canada, and help senior executives make critical decisions about investments, partnerships and plans to apply the technology successfully.
While most blockchain conferences and events are aimed at highly technical audiences such as application developers, or focused on topics solely related to cryptocurrencies, Blockchain Summit 2019 will create an exclusive, collaborative environment for business leaders who want to accelerate the deployment of smart contracts, decentralized applications or other enterprise benefits.
Building on success.
Our inaugural Blockchain Summit in 2018 helped define the technology and its applications, identify potential uses and laid the groundwork for developing a business plan. Blockchain Summit 2019 will help business leaders take those business cases forward with keynote speakers and plenary sessions that offer best practices applicable to a broad audience, along with in-depth tracks on areas such as finance, supply chain and the public sector. Whether you’re a returning delegate or joining us for the first time, this is the community of business peers who will set the bar for what excellence in Canadian blockchain adoption looks like.
