Event description



Blockchain: Rethink Trust 2018 is a new By the Bay conference focused on blockchain engineering and business use cases. The conference’s speaker panel includes leading experts from the most established companies in the blockchain world, including Coinbase, IBM, Bosch, ING, Bankex, Zededa. The event will take place in the heart of Amsterdam, at the historic venue Beurs van Berlage on Friday, June 29.

Rethink Trust 2018 is not another blockchain expo, convention, or coiner meetup. It is a natural continuation of a successful series of By the Bay conferences that looks at the core of blockchain technology and explores its business use cases. The conference will challenge the traditional understanding of blockchain and the corporate world by gathering top engineers, industry leaders, C-level executives, and blockchain enthusiasts who want to solidify their knowledge of the latest enterprise blockchain practices.

This year’s conference will cover topics like: integration of blockchain across key industries and its adoption in various organizational systems, the properties of blockchain protocols, and the aspects of distributed systems in Big Data, IoT, and AI. The main focus of the conference is re-engineering enterprise trust networks through blockchain technology.
