Overview of the event

The Blockchain Technology Conference 2018 will be happening on March 29th 2018 Bangkok. The Blockchain Conference 2018 will bring together a diverse range of experts who will discuss all the opportunities, challenges and exciting possibilities in innovation and disruption that can be leveraged in Bangkok using this technology.

National banks and regulators, exchanges and investment banks across the world are taking seriously the financial innovation of distributed ledger or block chain technology. The block chain, aka Trust Machine underpins "crypto currencies" such as Bitcoin; but it goes beyond digital money. It provides a shared, trusted, public ledger that everyone can inspect, but no single user controls. It is at the cusp of revolutionising international money transfers, trade finance, syndicated lending and collateral management, among other applications. As it allows for almost instantaneous payments and settlement, the potential impact on the role of traders, quants and other financial technologists cannot be underestimated.

The event features an inspiring day of talks and workshops by professional speakers focused on Blockchain technology and Innovation.

This conference brings together Block Chain technologists in the finance sector, regulators, industry commentators, computer science researchers and others involved in financial innovation; these experts explore some of the technology and the many applications of Block chain in Financial Services.

Workshop : Enterprise Blockchain for Technologists

We provide foundational knowledge about understanding block chain technology, history and related concepts. You will understand the practical implications of scientific research studies on block chain use cases. - Click Here for More Info

X Topic Abstract

Using blockchain technologies today, in a word, sucks. Slow transactions, abundant scams, and lack of viable products have generated very mixed feelings amongst the general public. This talk will take a look at how cryptoassets have gone from a niche research area to global frenzy in the form of cryptocurrency, and the incremental steps it can take to become as integral to peoples' daily lives in 2 years as the internet is today.

Features a case study of a financial service the speaker is developing, which will serve as a major bridge for a large contingent of professionals to become exposed to blockchain technology.

Speaker Profile

Hi everyone! My name is Alex Otsu, and I was the Chief Digital Officer at JB HIRED before leaving to start my own blockchain business. I specialize in breaking large problems down into discreet, addressable components. For example: while at JB, we were having trouble contacting candidates so I built a lead generation engine capable of adding up to 200,000 globally qualified individuals into our database each month. We were having trouble tracking clients so I led development on a robust system that even our least technical partners could use effectively.

I believe decentralization is the future, but that there is a long way to go before blockchains are as ubiquitous as smartphones. I believe my business can serve as a legitimate next step.


X Topic Abstract

This presentation will equip delegates with in-depth knowledge of all baseline concepts underpinning block chain and hyper-ledgers aka DLT (distributed ledger technology), a thorough understanding of the market dynamics and core dynamics. It will also contextualise block chain within a broader technology landscape and how these diverse domains are converging.

Via real-life case studies reviews and live demonstration of how to build multi-node enterprise block chain eco-systems, then post transactions over such block chain clusters, delegates will form a view on how the technology will apply to their respective sectors, the core benefits and innovative business models it unleashes and the core aspects to keep in mind during business casing and implementations.

Finally, the presentation will provide a first conceptual glimpse on “unchained” hyper-ledgers and the governance dimensions to keep in mind in order to future-proof any investment in block chain.

However, besides competition, they will also partner. Where do you think much of the investment level funding will come from? Not just traditional VC's but Corporates who recognize the need to have innovative partners who can move faster than they can. Or what about the companies who actively fund startups? Many large corporations all have Venture arms.
