The Address Dubai Marina
Dubai announced its intention to turn itself into the first blockchain-powered government in the world by 2020. These ambitions are part of the emirate’s goal of becoming a global business hub with next-generation technology playing a key role in delivering this vision. As a result, a number of Middle East companies both private and public have made substantial progress on understanding the opportunities, application and preparations of adopting the blockchain technology within their organisation.
So, what does all this hold for the current generation of executives who want to leverage Blockchain for shifting their business or transaction systems? During this event we will cover the basics of Blockchain technology, its current hype, real world applications, its role in the 4th industrial revolution and the transformation of the financial services.
Join our monthly network event to discuss all the opportunities, challenges and exciting possibilities in innovation and disruption that can be leveraged using this technology.
