As blockchain continues to develop, it leads us to ask, “Can blockchain solve the Internet’s most important problems: privacy, trust, security and inclusion?” It already powers digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, but is now enabling a new phenomenon sweeping the market – the Initial Coin Offering.
With Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), entrepreneurs are raising hundreds of millions with only a compelling white paper and a digital token that grants buyers some equity in or access to the features of the project.
This year, Money20/20 will bring together the most influential minds in this field to explore the path to blockchain’s adoption, from enterprise application to ICOs. The Blockchain track will cover all aspects of the blockchain landscape, including Equities Exchange, Regulation, Bitcoin in China and the rise of ICOs.
In an expansive panel discussion titled, “Private & Consortium Blockchains: Collaborating to Make Blockchain Real for Enterprise,” blockchain’s booming popularity for enterprise applications will be highlighted by the insight of industry leaders. This lineup includes Amber Baldet from JPMorgan Chase, Marley Gray from Microsoft, David Huseby from Hyperledger and Todd McDonald from R3.
The track’s discussions will also delve into the growth of ICOs, during an interview titled, “The Tezos Story: How Crypto Tokens Are Powering New Business Models” attendees will hear from co-founders Arthur and Kathleen Breitman. The session will illustrate how crypto tokens are powering new business models, with a focus on this unique success story – how they funded their own blockchain project by raising over $250 million through an Initial Coin Offering.
In the sessions highlighted, along with five other unique blockchain breakdowns, attendees can expect to walk away with a new insight to today’s digital currency market. Money20/20 will be held from October 22-25 at The Venetian in Las Vegas. For more information on Money20/20, and this year’s blockchain track sessions, please visit us.money2020.com.
