Background

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.

Programme of Past Event

Held at Singapore

    Registration

    Franco De Vita, Managing Partner at BlockchainOrganiseren

    Through use cases we explore (im)possibilities of Blockchain technology. Many cases are impeded by the law. The questions are whether we can build decentralized applications (dapps) within the framework of existing legislation and how we can mitigate conflicts with the law.

    Blockchain technology leads to a new paradigm. It is about using technology to create decentralized services. This will change existing business models, organizations and therefore society. In this context, it can be considered to be an ideology.

    The technology is ‘there’ but we are not.

    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. IT systems introduced in the past decades did not change this central approach, they only led to accelerated processing and ease of use.

    Now, due to Blockchain technology, society is faced to several challenges:
    ♦ First we need to accept and embrace this paradigm shift: from centralized to decentralized;
    ♦ Then we need to define how to govern decentralized applications which can be stateless (not tied to any particular country);
    ♦ Last but not least, governments need to adapt legislation.

    Ultimately, services can be offered by DAO’s, Decentralized Autonomous Organizations. A DAO is an organization that is run by code (Smart Contracts) on a Blockchain. A DAO can consist of software robots and hardware robots, as being the employees. Questions which arise are what the legal status of the DAO will be and, if the DAO is stateless, do we need a Worldwide Government entity?

    An intermediate solution is the use of so called Permissioned Blockchains, which can be used for commercial and public services that fits into existing regulations more easily and which can be tied to a legal entity.… challenging question …

    Blockchain/DLT: A Game-Changer in Multinational Corporations' Intercompany Supply Chain?

    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.
