Blockchain truly is a revolutionary mechanism to bring everyone to the highest degree of accountability. Above anything else, the most critical application of Blockchain technology is to guarantee the validity of a transaction by recording it on a distributed system of registers, all of which are interconnected through a secure time-stamped mechanism. In today's digital information age, Blockchain represents a critical intersection between the financial world, social networking, and powerful decentralized networks. Stakeholders must formulate careful legal and business strategies that factor in the technology and infrastructure, as well as the corresponding market appetite and regulatory structures in rapidly evolving global markets.
This Blockchain Technology Conference to be held on March 09, 2018 in Berlin aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of Blockchain technology by focusing on how to address the implementation challenges, make best use of the opportunities and benefit from the innovation and disruption that this technology brings along.
The event features an inspiring day of expert talks and solution based discussion by professional speakers focused on Blockchain technology and Innovation. The speaker session will be based on the latest trends and opportunities, challenges and the best practices in Blockchain implementation.

What happens when design decisions are made by engineers? Currently, that's what is mainly happening: technology got developed by geeks and engineers and at the end comes the question: so, how users can use it? Can they use it at all? Do they understand how to use it?
Any product development should start with a user need and then look at a Blockchain technology. Is it applicable in this case? Will it solve user problems? At the end, most of the products on the market are for a mass usage and should be targeted to different type of users. The talk will be about how to make a product using Blockchain technology usable and how to apply design thinking from early steps.- Vira Smirnova, Agile Product Strategist, Product Heroes UG
