Removing the Roadblocks to Enterprise Blockchain
BC-02
Vice President of Products
Vmware
Now that some of the hype has subsided, business leaders generally recognize where there is immense potential for Blockchain and distributed ledger technology to digitally transform business. But, those of us tasked with enabling it know that there is a big difference between the hype of running a proof-of-concept and implementing a solution that is truly enterprise-ready. One of the challenges is the complexity of mission-critical applications that may be subject to regulations. They must be approved, certified, supportable and dependable, requiring a much longer implementation across an ecosystem. The question is, how to introduce blockchain into the enterprise while creating value and managing expectations? This session will share tips for getting your organization started on its blockchain journey without becoming overwhelmed. Attendees will understand steps they can take to discover where blockchain technology can play a role in their projects, delivering business outcomes in the nearer term that can be used to prove its worth, and to understand the technology and the impacts more deeply setting up more ambitious future projects.

The digital world has changed the need for identity and security. In fact, identity protection and security have become a priority across industries as the trust paradigm has shifted to a model where “trust no one” is the key to success, paving the way for decentralized identity and zero trust models as a means to thwart fraud. Without new tools, it’s become increasingly easy for cyber criminals to steal and fake user identities. This session discusses the role of blockchain in creating a system of decentralized identity and a zero trust strategy, delivering a new level of protection for a digital society.

Blockchain Keynote: Preparing for a Tokenized World
BCK-01
The world is becoming more tokenized. It's estimated that at least 46 million Americans own crypto today, and major companies like Square, Robinhood, Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and others are firmly integrating crypto into their product stacks. NFTs, too, are becoming increasingly popular, with world-famous DJs are offering exclusive NFTs and major sports organizations making exclusive content available as NFTs. With this increase in adoption, there’s a growing need for tokenization. The World Economic Forum projects 10% of the world’s GDP will be tokenized by 2027. Those who don’t embrace these new technologies will be left behind. This session will discuss how enterprises can prepare for this shift and what steps they should take to keep up and innovate in a crypto-first future.

Legal Tender: What We Are Learning from El Salvador Bitcoin Experiment
BC-15
Bitcoin so far has been used as a store-of-value asset, and because it's not adopted widely enough, it's volatility remains largely unchanged. But, the hope is that using cryptocurrency as legal tender can improve the financial system for the benefit of all businesses and citizens of all classes. As El Salvador moves into past the initial months of its Bitcoin experiment, there are many lessons and takeaways other governments and financial institutions can learn from these pioneers. Certainly, the country has already seen its share of problems but, as the kinks get worked out, many other countries will soon follow suit. This session details the lessons that have been already learned from just a few months of this Bitcoin Experiment that others can draw upon.

BC-16
Money is changing. The growth of the crypto world is introducing more and more people to digital currencies and their benefits.

This session will discuss why that interoperability is necessary, what it means for local markets and users, and how interoperability is being enabled.

What Does the Future of Crypto Banking Look Like?
BC-17
CEO & Co-Founder
Everest
Banking and finance have been moving painfully slowly on when it comes to embracing crypto- and blockchain-based solutions, even as some major players in the financial sector have openly launched blockchain projects. Regulation, of course, plays a strong part in keeping a slow and steady pace, but even that is changing. PayPal and others have made moves to circumvent banks by enabling users to pay securely with cryptocurrency. At the same time, we’ve seen major policy shifts and regulatory statements from leading financial authorities and institutions globally. Morgan Stanley, for instance, became the first bank to offer access to crypto funds. What does this all mean for the future of banking, as traditional banks and other financial institutions seek to delivering enhanced digital customer experiences, while maintaining a focus on security and privacy? This session will look at the impact of blockchain on the banking industry, what banking will look like five and ten years down the road, and what it means for customers, both retail and commercial.
