Utilizing Blockchain: NFT Hype vs. Reality
BC-04
While there is plenty of hype around NFTs, the truth is the industry is struggling to achieve mass adoption. Is it the lack of education? Or a lack of projects that appeal to the average non-NFT consumer? is the process of becoming an NFT holder too complicated for the average individual? To encourage mass adoption, people need to be taught that NFTs are more than digital art. The truth is the underlying technology provides many useful applications in various industries. This session discusses why adoption isn’t as strong as many expected it to be, and what needs to happen to truly bring NFTs into the mainstream, so businesses in various industries can leverage NFTs with their customers.

Unlocking Longer and Healthier Human Lives with Web3
BC-06
While often conflated with health hacks and snake oil, longevity medicine is a growing area of research that is powering a deeper understanding of how and why we age. Academics, investors, clinicians, and technology providers are conducting groundbreaking research on therapeutics like psychedelic mental health options and aging clocks that will revolutionize human health. Blockchain has the power to democratize research and provide financing for the longevity projects by taking a community-driven approach to funding. NFTs, DAOs, and crypto are also finding their place within the world of longevity. As a result, we are seeing far more science- and evidence-based indications that indicate how a longer and healthier life is becoming a reality.

DAOs are the latest buzz in the blockchain community and represent a fundamental shift from traditional business. They espouse democratic participation, transparency in decision-making, and group empowerment. The question is, is the economy ready for DAOs? This session discusses the idea of creating DAOs for general users to participate and become engaged in various aspects of the DAO ecosystem, from token flow to governance to network upgrades and other decisions. What is a DAO and how will they fit into the economic and business landscape?

Reducing Intermediaries with Trust & Visibility
BC-09
CEO SIMBA Chain
Global supply chains are complex networks involving multiple stakeholders. Today, many supply chains are strained and lack the transparency needed to track materials as they travel from suppliers to producers and on to customers. This journey requires ongoing data integration from multiple sources, often resulting in inconsistencies. Without a single “source of truth” there are inevitable trust and verification issues. Blockchain technology solves these problems by providing all stakeholders with access to immutable, transparent, data in real time. This session will showcase active case studies from businesses leveraging blockchain to improve visibility and accountability within their supply chains. For example, Boeing, uses blockchain to track and trace F/A-18 wing parts with one integrated system; and TOKs, a fast-casual restaurant chain with over 200 locations across Mexico, removed 9 intermediaries from its coffee supply chain and increased farmers’ wages by over 600%.

Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Law for Non-Attorneys
BC-10
Attorney The Wagoner Firm PLLC
As cryptocurrency continues to grow in popularity, blockchain technology is becoming an increasingly common choice for storing and securing sensitive data, supply chain information, and more. That , inherently, brings with it legal questions, ramifications, and claims – a new area for HR departments, legal firms and professionals, and both individual and corporate blockchain users. Most crypto users are not legal experts and don’t understand the legal implications of blockchain and crypto – but they should. This session will explain legal fundamentals of blockchain and cryptocurrency, specifically for non-legal professionals to help them understand laws and regulations as they apply to crypto.

How Municipalities Like Miami, Denver, and Utah City Are Embracing Blockchain and Cryptocurrency
BC-11
Cities across the country are starting to explore how blockchain technology and cryptocurrency can help them become more efficient, transparent, and secure. Miami, Denver, and Utah City have all implemented pilot programs that use distributed ledger technology for a variety of services. For example, Miami has partnered with BitPay to allow residents to pay taxes with Bitcoin, while Denver is using blockchain technology to store public records such as birth certificates and marriage licenses. Utah City has also implemented blockchain technology for its voting system, allowing citizens to cast their votes securely online. Blockchain and cryptocurrency are providing new opportunities for municipalities to improve services in areas such as taxation, record keeping, and voting. By leveraging the power of these technologies, cities can ensure that their services remain secure and efficient for years to come. From tokenizing municipal debt to using blockchain for identity management and voting systems, these cities are showing the potential of DLT in public service applications. This session will discuss the varying levels of success achieved, community response, pitfalls to avoid and potential for wider adoption.

Why NFTs Aren’t Working Like They Should
BC-14
CMO TNNS Pro
NFTs, as they are being used today, lack flexibility and don’s fit the gaming industry at all. Yet, that is a market ripe with opportunity and an audience that is ready to adopt NFTs – if they are implemented more effectively. To adapt it and make it more suitable for gaming, NFT technology should expand its functions. First, simple collateral-free NFT rent would help with the mass adoption of Web3 Gaming. Second, building dynamic NFTs that can upgrade when a player levels up in a game would make them more attractive to users. Third, the combination and dividing of items will give gaming NFTs more liquidity. In addition, decentralized NFT metadata storage would make the whole industry more secure for users. Last, but not least, these lessons can lead to a more mature NFT market, not only in gaming, but in other industries as well.

Cryptocurrency Litigation - Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
BC-16
Partner Silver Miller
As with any investment, cryptocurrency carries its share of risk – and, inevitably, lawsuits. Over the past several years, many notable crypto promoters have faced lawsuits due to alleged fraud, deceit, or malpractice of some form. It’s not surprising, given the lack of maturity of the crypto market and its volatility. But, it brings up questions when businesses or individuals are looking to invest, or to raise capital. This session looks at the scope of litigation in the crypto space, what it means to the industry, and what lessons have been learned about investing and raising capital to avoid issues that can derail your operations.

Cross-chain, Interoperability & Scalability

Much like the early internet, current blockchains live in different ecosystems with limited, if any, interoperability. To truly realize the promise of blockchain, cross-chain interoperability must be realied to deliver the scalability and wide-reaching benefits blockshain can deliver. This session discusses the challenges in the current blockchain ecosystem model and how universal interoperability will help drive the next phase in blockchain evolution, adoption, and monetization.

Enabling Blockchains to Comply with “Right to Be Forgotten"
BC-18
Chief Scientist RMTM
The so-called “Right to be forgotten” is part of many data privacy regulations, including EU’s GDPR. Though it has yet to be mandated or widely implemented in the U.S., most Americans support the concept. Can blockchain be used to support Right to Be Forgotten regulations? How does that impact immutability? What other implications do data privacy requirements and blockchain hold for one another and what do they mean for businesses?

Closing the Encryption Gap in the Era of DeFi
BC-21
VP Engineering Anjuna
Despite the advanced security built into secure Multi-Party Computation (MPC), blockchain and other technologies to support digital finance, assets and wallets, there is a fundamental gap that can expose cryptographic private keys and put systems and resources at considerable risk. This encryption gap widely exists but is usually not discussed or even understood, and the immutability and separation utilized by MPC can be undermined if the encryption gap is not addressed. This session will discuss the existing gap, how it is exploited and how it can be effectively closed.
