Oslo Blockchain Summit: Empowering Sustainable Development with Blockchain
September 25th, 2018 Oslo Innovation Week // Oslo, Norway // 13:00 - 18:00 The Pathfounder Presents a Summit Exploring the Impact of Blockchain on Sustainability
Join the conversation with international thought leaders on how blockchain can drive sustainable development
Blockchain technology has the potential to help forge a fairer, more just world. Digital assets are being created and assigned value, while consensus is being reached independent of a central authority or government.
Early pilots and test cases have demonstrated that blockchain’s properties of decentralization, transparency and immutability have the potential to reshape everything from how we consume and produce energy, how the developed and developing world work to solve plastic pollution, how we ensure equitable pay to producers, to how we sustain an independent, critical media and more.
The Oslo Blockchain Summit will examine the impact blockchain is having on sustainable development but will also address the issues common to all blockchain projects. Here's what you can expect:
-- A showcase of some of the world's best blockchain companies tackling sustainable development issues today
-- Understanding how token economics works and why tokens need to be an integral part of a project, and not just an add-on
-- What does the recent downturn in ICO funding mean for blockchain startups?
-- How is blockchain converging with other technologies like AI, machine learning and IoT?
-- How can blockchain be truly sustainable if the question of mining isn't addressed? What are the alternatives?
