As revolutionary as it sounds, Blockchain truly is a mechanism to bring everyone to the highest degree of accountability. No more missed transactions, human or machine errors, or even an exchange that was not done with the consent of the parties involved. Above anything else, the most critical area where Blockchain helps is to guarantee the validity of a transaction by recording it not only on a main register but a connected distributed system of registers, all of which are connected through a secure validation mechanism.” The Blockchain technology is set to disrupt the financial world.
Blockchain has many applications in supply chains, healthcare, global monetary systems, financial technologies, democratic elections, auction of public assets, energy trading, electronic record authentication, delivery of Government services, IoT and much, much more.
Blockchain technology in the information age represents the critical intersection between the financial rails, social networking, and powerful decentralised networks. It is critical for stakeholders to formulate careful legal and business strategies around novel business models as the technology and infrastructure, as well as the corresponding market appetite and regulatory structures, evolve rapidly in disparate global markets.
You will learn why the Blockchain technology is a smarter way to track financial transactions & contracts. They are faster, safer & more efficient than any ledger ever before.

Franco De Vita, Managing Partner at Blockchain Organiseren
The promise of Blockchain is that it will change the way we cooperate, how we organize trust and how we organize society.
As an example:
“Through Blockchain technology a Personal Data Service can be implemented giving the citizen control of his/her personal data. This leads to self-sovereign citizens, less dependent on government agencies and commercial parties.”
Basically, Blockchain will change the world, but till now it has not happened. Why is that?
Blockchain services that have been taken into operation have proven to be more efficient then existing technology and to be fraud resistant. This gives us the possibility to create new business models without intermediaries. Then why is the promise of Blockchain still not fulfilled?
What is possible in software technology, sometimes appears to be impossible within the context of our society because many use cases are impeded by law and regulations. Usage is also impeded by ‘invisible forces’, represented by organizations, institutes, directors and managers, but also by the ordinary citizen or employee. These ‘invisible forces’ are driven by bureaucracy, legacy, insecurity and even reluctance to change.
Existing government and its regulations are defined for centralized services. This is a process that has evolved over centuries. Institutions were created and central registries have been introduced to safeguard services. Both the law and the ‘invisible forces’ are tied up to this paradigm. The question is whether we can build decentralized applications within the current framework of legislation and how we can mitigate potential conflicts. Nevertheless, with the introduction of cryptocurrencies the paradigm-shift from centralized to decentralized has started.
Blockchain technology is evolving rapidly. The so called Permissioned Blockchains, which can be used for commercial and public services comply with existing regulations more easily.
Through some interesting use cases of Blockchain ecosystems we will explore the (im)possibilities.

Pradeep Goel, CEO, Solve.Care
Healthcare payments are very challenging due to 3rd party model, involvement of multiple stakeholders and complexity of transactions. It is not unusual for the payment administration to cost as much as the payment for services. There is no other industry with a comparable cost and complexity of payments at this scale. The systems and processes used to administer healthcare payments focus on making sure each transaction is accurate while trying to deal with retroactive events, and it is a losing battle.
We will discuss how an intelligent currency built on Blockchain and smart contracts can be used to make healthcare payments efficient, transparent, accountable, auditable and adjustable.
We will present a currency design and approach that can replace complex payment systems with a programmable healthcare currency that will cost a fraction of current payment models, significantly reduce fraud and abuse and lead to more effective delivery and use of care.
Solve.Care leadership team has decades of experience in building complex IT systems to serve healthcare delivery and administration. The team is combining Blockchain technology, domain expertise and public policy experience to redefine healthcare administration in the US and around the world

Undoubtedly, “Blockchain” is one of the key technology buzzwords of 2017. While there is still considerable hype around this topic, we’re starting to see real projects using Blockchain, and real value emerging in certain markets. This presentation will look at several recent examples that highlight the drive for innovation behind Blockchain’s adoption within a Digital Supply Chain and Internet of Things (IoT) context.

Many enterprises want to explore the Blockchain technology on their premises to reap the benefits of the new phenomena, however its getting hard for the enterprises to find a right use case. The more enterprises start using the technology, the better adaption rate to help evolve the technology. This session will give a great sense of the non-banking use cases for the enterprises.

Wenbin Zhang, Research Scientist, IBM Center for Blockchain Innovation
A Multinational Corporation (MNC) usually produces or sells goods and/or services in various countries. Its subsidiary in Country A can sign contracts with clients in A, but the MNC manufactures products or performs services in other subsidiaries in other countries. Namely, MNC’s businesses with clients are carried out/supported by its intercompany supply chain among its subsidiaries across different countries/jurisdictions. Unlike usual supply chain consisting of various parties who are legally unrelated, this intercompany supply chain is for legally related parties who belong to the same big corporation/group. Though internal to an MNC, it is complex and subject to governments’ regulation, compliance and audit in each jurisdiction. Current practice of this supply chain in MNCs has encountered serious problems, such as tax disputes especially in India. In this talk, we shall discuss some of these problems, and how Blockchain/Distributed Ledger Technology can help MNCs to solve them.
