Blockchains - A Valuable Commercial Contribution or a Romanticized Technology Playground?

Mittwoch, 22. Nov 2017, 12:30 Uhr bis 13:30 Uhr

Blockchains provide the modern technology for a distributed ledger, for which participating stakeholders do not need to show a pre-established trust relation. Thus, everyone can participate in case of public blockchains being used. This fact is exploited within the most prominent application of blockchains, the Bitcoin approach, a real crypto-currency.

Does this application - and others - provide a valuable commercial contribution or does the underlying blockchain technology lead into a romanticized future of trustless interactions beyond any currently known limits?
