STCC, Room 3A
Switzerland, world hub for blockchain technologies and the role of the blockchain in journalism (sponsored by Digital Switzerland)
Blockchain: a silent revolution?
Switzerland is regarded worldwide as the hub for blockchain technology. But what about blockchain technology today? Can technology keep the promises it is said to have made? Can the technology ensure transparency, equality, privacy, security and efficiency in a digital ecosystem? In addition to the promises, practical implications such as regulation, adoption and integration into existing systems will also be discussed at the panel.
Stakeholders from science, business and civil society will address these questions using various practical examples, such as media promotion and energy consumption. We are looking forward to your participation!
