Keynote: Taming the Bitcoin Blockchain

A session at JAX 2016

Tuesday 19th April, 2016

8:00pm to 8:45pm (CET)

Bitcoin and blockchain technology are mentioned everywhere in the media and described alternately as disruptive, innovative, criminal, brilliant, and the future of financial technology. This keynote will separate the reality from the hype, covering a brief history, current uses and developments, and advantages being explored by the fintech industry. Bitcoin will be demystified as a currency, recognizing its usefulness and perceived threat to governments, corporations, and banks. We’ll also cover what makes the bitcoin blockchain such a revolutionary tool, and why those same institutions are trying to bend it to their will. Lastly, we’ll discuss alternative blockchains like Ethereum, and the additional solutions they offer.
