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 21, 2018 in Boston 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.
Blockchain truly is a revolutionary mechanism to bring everyone to the highest degree of accountability. One place where this level of traceability and trust is most needed right now is in the food industry. As the most critical application of Blockchain technology is to guarantee the validity of transactions – authenticity in food that consumers buy and serve their families is a milestone opportunity. Consumers have shifted from making food purchase and consumption choices based on taste, price and convenience to demanding more in terms of transparency, health, safety, and authenticity (itself driven by an increased importance placed on honesty and integrity.)
Heightened consumer demand for increased product safety assurances moves down the supply chain with retailers and service providers asking for verifiable proof that robust market compliance and product safety control systems have been effectively implemented.
The variety of companies wanting to participate in Blockchain are driven by a need to demonstrate not only their market compliance, but also the consistently high quality of their methods and products. Most participants in the supply chain complain about the lack of transparency and trust by other participants. All stakeholders are asking for a better supply-chain collaboration method. Blockchain can provide a foundation for accountability and for predictive analytics to take a more proactive approach...if companies are willing to collaborate and if we have a well-trained workforce that can provide support and leadership.- Dr. Darin Detwiler, Assistant Dean, Northeastern University College of Professional Studies
As the digital ad industry has grown the ad fraud issue has grown to $16 billion and after 10 years the major executives in the industry say the problem continues to grow and there hasn’t been a complete solution just yet. For example, there was a bot farm that took millions of dollars of revenue from video advertisers and what it did was automatically open the same video over and over and each video view represented $0.05-$0.10 of revenue. So with many millions of automated views the farm took millions of dollars. Clearly, this is an untenable situation. But technology has come of age to solve it, and with the distributed ledger (the blockchain), one can create a tamper-proof record of where ad quality is high and where it is low. An explanation of this paradigm shift would be the crux of our presentation.- Tammy Leigh Kahn, Chief Operating Officer, ClearCoin
