Upcoming Event

Overview of the event

The Blockchain Technology Conference 2018 will be happening on April 20th 2018 Hong Kong. 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 Hong Kong 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

How and when can government, industries, academia and startups leverage Blockchain technologies to enhance Smart City development?

Many business leaders still associate Blockchain with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. In fact, there are various Blockchain technologies for different purposes, and major research firms are rapidly accelerating their evolutions. Blockchain technologies in combination with other emerging technologies -- like the internet of things, artificial intelligence, decentralized applications or web 3.0 -- have enormous potential for shaping future Smart Cities.

A Smart City uses digital technologies to promote performance, sustainability and well being, and to increase its ability to respond to citywide and global challenges (resilience). Traditional Smart City initiatives, like the Hong Kong Smart City Blueprint (https://www.smartcity.gov.hk), focus on"Smart Mobility", "Smart Living", "Smart Environment", "Smart People", "Smart Government" and "Smart Economy”, etc. However, the potential for Blockchain to improve and impact these initatives has yet to be fully explored or realized.
