Event description

Description

The distributed ledger technology known as blockchain holds potential to revolutionize global financial markets. But blockchain applications extend beyond finance.

Big corporations are also embracing blockchains to improve transparency in their supply chains, but there are still some big questions about how and where the technology can be best applied.

  • How can we be sure that information uploaded to a blockchain is reliable at the interface between the real world and the blockchain i.e. "The Oracle"?

  • How robust is the technology behind blockchain?

  • Which industries have the most to gain from the transparency that a blockchain gives in reducing fraud, errors, delays from paperwork and increasing brand trust?

  • How can companies be convinced to start using blockchain despite that there are few real world cases?

Join GreenBuzz for a thematic evening to discuss blockchain technologies and their applications for supply chain management.

Non-experts are welcome to attend, as well as professionals who already have exposure to or expertise in blockchain technology in their daily work.

This event addresses Sustainable Development Goals 9 (Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure) and 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).
