(BUSINESS WIRE)-- For its 2016 edition, the world leading event dedicated to secure payment, identification and connectivity will include a high level conference programme among which a one day conference track on BLOCKCHAIN.
THURSDAY 1ST DECEMBER – 10h30AM / 4PM
THE FUTURE OF BLOCKCHAIN: HIT OR FLOP?
Its name is on everybody’s lips and crypto-currencies hit the headlines - for good or evil. However, they have not experienced any significant development so far. Still, the interest of a growing number of stakeholders moved on the virtues of Blockchain technology, which demonstrates considerable potential in many areas, be it in the financial sector, automotive, IoT or health.
This conference will be chaired by Jean-Noël Georges, Global Program Director, Research Manager at Frost & Sullivan:
“Even if the blockchain is probably the hottest ‘buzzword’ of the year, the technology is far from being mature. However, it offers considerable potential for the industry. Even though it still needs to progress notably on regulatory and technical levels, the blockchain will eventually and undoubtedly accelerate its adoption rate in other sectors than finance.”
