Overview of the event

The Blockchain Technology Conference 2018 will be happening on October 24th 2018 Dublin. 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 Dublin 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.

X Topic Abstract

Blockchain is considered to be a foundation technology that promises to create new ways for economic and social growth. Since the publication of Satoshi Nakamoto white paper, the pace of technological development in the blockchain ecosystem has accelerated significantly allowing for the application of blockchain technology in areas outside the financial sector. Accordingly, the rate of investment made in Blockchain-led companies through traditional (VC funding) or non-traditional channels (ICO) has risen significantly, with over $800 million being invested in 2017. However, amidst all the excitement, there is a sense of uncertainty on how blockchain innovators can protect their innovations to gain an advantage over their competitors. More specifically, there is much confusion surrounding the IP protection of software-based innovations, which forms an integral part of the blockchain ecosystem. The presentation aims to provide high-level guidance on how IP protection or the lack thereof can impact individual innovators, groups of founders, or entities operating in the blockchain space. More specifically, this presentation would address questions surrounding the current IP protection framework for software-based innovations, including a discussion on the importance of Trade Secrets, offer guidance on how to develop a robust IP strategy, provide advice on leveraging the IP generated to help your business succeed, and discuss how to deal with Open Source initiatives.
