X Topic Abstract

The asset management industry has the following problems:

- Performance: inconsistent outperformance and no alpha on average
- High fees: Equity funds charge on average 1.08% fees capturing 13.9% of performance
- Divergence of interest: Asset managers make more money by managing the AUM rather on making profits with trading
- Poor transparency, to the extent that MIFID 2 had to step in.

A blockchain based solution can solve those problems by eliminating middlemen (solving high fees and the divergence of interest), by utilizing the global pool of investment talent (performance) and by providing a public ledger the necessary transparency. We will explain step by step How the traditional Asset Management Industry works actually, compared to a blockchainified one.

X Topic Abstract

Blockchain isn't the answer to every enterprise computing problem. It's a technology and, like any technology, it shouldn't be a solution looking for a problem. The fact is that certain blockchain use-cases will be around for the long term, others won't. In this presentation, Jeffrey Peel will outline some of the most interesting blockchain use-cases that he's seen in Fintech and beyond. He'll also outline some of the companies that are actively developing interesting business models and that have been funded by ICO (or traditional funding routes) that are likely to disrupt existing markets.

X Topic Abstract

During this talk, I will address Blockchain reforming the supply chain with specific attention to how the technology improves supply chain transparency, sustainability and security.

Blockchain technology has the ability and capacity to create the next generation of digital supply chain networks and platforms which will be pivotal to the success of business transactions, thereby creating new business models. Supply chain traceability leverages transparency to operationalize organizational goals related to raw material origins and provide context to a final product or service. Blockchain technologies, provide increased supply chain transparency, added to this, the DLT creates an immutable and distributed aspect of the chain of custody record by nature of the protocol which lends itself well to traceability applications. Recent adoption of IoT and Blockchain technologies offer the promise of better supply chain provenance, especially with use cases for provenance tracking (food, high-valued assets, retail, drugs, parts). Thus far, in our age of Big Data, a key problem lies in determining provenance, whether it is tracking ingredients of a pharmaceutical or demonstrating authenticity of luxury goods, often unachievable with today's goods which are produced and transported in complex, inter-organizational, often internationally-spanning supply chains. However, 2018 has heralded a change in supply chain management with the integration of Blockchain, which many firms worldwide are leveraging.

- I will provide use cases as well as some major players in the blockchain/supply chain sector discussing various goods.

- Analyses of specific white papers leveraging the technology with other tech (AI, RFID, Synthetic DNA).

X Topic Abstract

This is not going to be the usual low level speech on how Blockchain works (which unless you’re really interested in SQL Queries optimisation or bandwith management you should be concerned about).

Right now there’s a lot of attention on it cause it’s raw and its new but In 3 to 5 years Blockchain is going to be a standard and the foundation for a new generation of internet, not a disruptive tech but a foundational tech

This speech wants to bring some clarity in all the buzz generated. It is in fact possible to insert the development, adoption and evolution of the Blockchain in an existing framework underlining the 4 different phases of foundational tech affirmation.

Along with that one of the main goal of the speech is going to be underlining why the transition towards blockcahin is going to be simply natural as funding part of the new tech evolutionary cycle we are approaching.

This new evolutionary cycle, will begin a new era of Internet, more democratic, entrepreneurial, shared and distributed, a renaissance that is going to bring the Internet much closer to its original ideas and promises.

The speech is going to tackle these different aspects also by analysing concrete use cases and live actions underlining how Blockchain pragmatically answers to the main challenges some of the most important industries are facing (ADV, Music, Banking, Insurance etc) Data will have value as such, certified by their encryption and verified in real time from the very same network on which they are processed.

It's going to be the gradual end of business models based on aggregation of data and services in favour of transactions and services exchange between individuals, certified by the network itself in encrypted information blocks, processed and stored in a distributed database, owned exclusively by the user who has originally generated them .

Those who once were the disruptors will have to be able to let go and coherently adapt or they are going to be, this time, the ones to be disrupted

A moment that will overthrow forever the status quo and who will work on transparency in a democratic, direct and distributed way and it's happening as you Listen.

Conference Schedule

Day 2 : Blockchain Technology (05th October, 2018)

X Topic Abstract

Ever since Satoshi Nakamoto revealed the Bitcoin network on the blockchain almost 10 years ago, there has been a great excitement about the potential uses of blockchain. World over, the entrepreneurs, scientists and investors are looking at this technology and trying to experiment and build prototypes with the wide array possibilities that span across the personal, social, societal and commercial areas. The figure below provides an example of areas where there is an activity on building blockchain based solutions.



Some of the interesting solutions beyond the financial services

1. E-Voting

Online Electoral polling is an area that has been plagued with the triple challenge of security and anonymity while maintaining transparency. Increasing voter turnout would also be a likely by product of bringing elections securely online. A number of solutions are being researched by the government and non-government agencies across the globe and block chain seems to provide a panacea to all the above challenges. Using blockchain, a voter can ably verify if the vote was successfully transferred while still remaining anonymous to others.

2. Proof of Existence - Decentralized Notary

Proof of Existence (PoE) is an online service that verifies the existence of computer files as of a specific time via timestamped transactions in the bitcoin blockchain. PoE enables a user to transfer data to a server with a transaction fee to get a cryptographic proof of the data entered on the Bitcoin blockchain. As the actual data is not stored online, there is no possibility of undesirable disclosure of the information of the user. Once the uploading of the document is completed with the transaction fee, a digital file or a hash of the document is developed as a proof of the action.

3. Digital ownership and music royalties

The use of blockchain can help change musicians license and get paid their songs. The royalty system needs to work logically allowing the musicians to freely concentrate on their tunes and get paid if someone uses their tunes. PeerTracks is one of several companies attempting to set up a system where every artist would sell their own separate cryptocurrency tokens as shares in their future earnings, and streaming royalties would be allocated to the owners of the tokens via smart contracts.

4. Asset Management

Asset management is one such field where the blockchain can leverage eliminating the custodian, broker or a settlement manager who is prone to inefficiency and errors in recording. The process of the blockchain ledger encrypting the records enables a reduction of the errors while simplifying the process.

5. Processing of Insurance Claims

Another field is Insurance Claims processing that is confronting unpleasant procedure. Most of the time the claim processors have to go through the fragmented records of data, or abandoned policies to name a few. A possibility of error is enormous. The blockchain enables a foolproof process for error-free administration and transparency. The encryption properties of the blockchain make insurance companies capture details of the asset ownership to insure.

6. Payments in the Cross-Border Trading

The field of cross-border payments is susceptible to errors and money laundering. The blockchain is already providing solutions to the remittance companies such as Bitspark, Align Commerce, and Abra offering blockchain driven remittance services. The banker, Santander turned as the first bank in 2004 to merge blockchain to a payment application permitting clients to do cross-border payment round-the- clock.

7. Money Lending for your Smart Property

The blockchain is capable to lessen bankruptcy chances and lose homes placed as a collateral in a loan. The blockchain enables a stranger to loan money to you against your smart property offered as a collateral encoded on the blockchain that is visible to anyone. This eliminates the need to show your work or credit history and the need for manually processing many documents.

8. Your Smartphone/Car

Your car key and smartphone can function on cryptography to secure your ownership with the right protocol or a PIN code. The blockchain ledger can easily replace and reproduce a lost protocol transferring or copying the physically held SIM card or car key.

9. Warranty Receipts

The solution uses a Facebook messenger ChatBot to store warranty receipts on the blockchain. It helps reduce disputes between retailers and customers for lost receipts and unreadable receipts and at the same time can track history of ownership

10. Patient Record Management

Blockchain based record management system to enable companies to simplify claim processing, secure medical records, monitor the pharma supply chain and collaborate with network stakeholders
