Unlocking Potential of Blockchain Technology For a New Decentralised World
Blockchain technology is already marching confidently across all the industries. People have started realising that it is not just a toy for a bunch of hackers, but a powerful tool which has the potential to be deployed by financial institutions, businesses, governments and individuals. Dr. Julian Hosp will talk about the potential of blockchain technology to establish a new decentralised economy, how to accelerate that process and adapt to it.
The World Economic Forum predicts that 10 percent of the global GDP will be stored on the blockchain in less than 10 years. In terms of today’s global GDP that would be $7.8 trillion. Here a challenge arises: If we do not find a way to connect blockchains, these $7.8 trillion will be dispersed in such a way that its true value is a lot lower. So what's the solution? Dr. Julian Hosp talks about why it’s necessary to connect blockchains without creating a new larger blockchain and potential solutions for mass-crypto adoption.
