Overview of the event

The Blockchain Summit 2017 will be happening on December 14th 2017 Sydney. The Blockchain Conference 2017 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 Sydney 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

Lawyers have written the code that runs our world. Crypto-Anarchists, geeks and hackers are writing the software that runs blockchains. As blockchains start running more of our economy, we need to consider what happens when the rules of our economic system start being written into the economic infrastructure itself. What lessons must developers take from the rich legal tradition? What lessons can lawyers take from software and systems design to prepare for an increasingly automated, technical and international legal landscape?
