Suddenly everyone is talking about Blockchain. It seems that every day brings news of a new multi-million dollar investment in a Blockchain venture. Meanwhile, start-up entrepreneurs are seeking to make their mark by challenging established business models and CTO’s of major institutions right across the industry spectrum are looking to re-invent their businesses.

Nicholas Giurietto, the Chief Executive of the Australian Digital Currency & Commerce Association, will share how company directors can prepare for the ‘disrupt or be disrupted’ challenge presented by Blockchain technology. The presentation will focus on the core features of the Blockchain and why the notion of ‘trustless transactions' recorded on a distributed ledger challenges so many existing business models.

A brief demonstration of two Blockchain applications developed in Australia will bring the theory to life and lead to a discussion of how Blockchain technology will transform almost every industry.

This presentation will discuss:
What is the Blockchain?
Trustless Transactions and the demise of the intermediary
Application Demonstrations – Distributed ID and Proof of Work
Industry Roundup – examples of Blockchain disruption for multiple industries
Australian businesses are starting to sit up and take notice of Blockchain as a truly disruptive technology

Start-up entrepreneurs are seeking to make their mark by challenging established business models. CTOs of major institutions right across the industry spectrum are looking to re-invent their businesses. Trade finance, exchange settlements and insurance are just the most obvious candidates for a productivity revolution based on Blockchain technology. Regulators and professional services providers are racing to keep up. And 2016 is shaping up as the year in which the race will be won or lost. Those who grab a lead in business transformation this year will be hard to dislodge. Those who are slow will need to disrupt the disruptors.
