Beyond Fintech

How is blockchain creating pivotal transformation in fintech and how can digital assets disrupt the status quo? Will all major currencies soon be digital – digital Dollar, digital Euro, etc.? Can decentralized finance (DeFi) democratize access to capital? Our panel of global experts and practitioners will discuss these important trends plus look at the technology’s strategic implications and imperatives that can unlock tremendous value for enterprises, governments, and humanity. They will also put these topics into their real-world context by discussing which policies and regulations will either streamline or limit adoption.

Reviving Healthcare

The healthcare industry is undergoing significant transformation in areas such as cybersecurity, revenue cycle management, and personalized healthcare. With rampant large-scale ransomware attacks with some of the largest health systems, administration inefficiencies in health providers, and a one-size-fits-all approach that still prevails, the healthcare industry is exploring new innovative solutions. Blockchain and AI-based systems are now poised to revive the delivery of healthcare. Join leading companies and experts who are embracing blockchain and AI to deliver more robust, comprehensive, and personalized healthcare.

Upgrading Supply Chains

As has become evident at scale during the pandemic, centralized supply chain systems are not resilient in the face of sudden change and data is often unreliable. The result is that it can take many months to fix disruptions. Additionally, counterfeiting is on an exponential rise with the total value of counterfeit and pirated goods forecast to exceed $2.3 trillion by 2022. Blockchain and AI working in tandem have the ability to rapidly increase the reliability of the supply chains that the world depends on by increasing transparency, reducing fraud, and creating a more resilient infrastructure. Our panel of experts will discuss the leading trends in upgrading global supply chain systems.

Digital Ownership Revolution & the Metaverse

After 30 years of the Web, Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) finally enable everyone to own digital assets online. This is a dramatic shift - an ownership revolution - since we can now verifiably own anything online including art, music, text, collectibles, etc. With this foundation we can now begin to really create and explore the 3D Web, often known as the Metaverse, that we will inhabit virtually online. Though this is new technology, the space is exploding with billions of dollars of virtual goods changing hands on a monthly basis. Our panel of top NFT experts and leading companies will lend insights into this dynamic and fast growth space.
