If the Enterprise Blockchains have to share data in a Business Value Network (BVN), create digital twins of physical objects and transfer digital value they need to be secure. Public Blockchains are inherently secure due to use of proof-of-work algorithms which requires expending resources to achieve consensus. How secure are permissioned Blockchains? What is Nash Equilibrium? What are incentive / disincentive consensus mechanisms? What happens when identification credentials are lost?
Please join us in exploring the Security of Enterprise Blockchains

Over the last ten years, platforms have successfully emerged and are now dominating all industries — prime examples being Airbnb, Amazon, Netflix and Google. Platforms give ultimate control connecting buyers and sellers to create economies of scale on both the demand and supply side.
Blockchain has proven effective in solving many problems associated with centralization; the canonical example being Bitcoin. Over the last couple of years, a range of distributed ledgers have emerged with similar missions — to use the benefits of peer-to-peer networks and techniques of decentralization to provide a system that can be trusted — 100%.
How can banks use blockchain as a platform to deliver personalized banking services?
Aspire Systems welcomes you to the third session of the Millennial Banking Day. Millennials today are transforming the way banking is done. In a world where all other industries have started to serve their millennials at the speed and scale to keep them engaged, this puts a huge pressure on banks to innovate in such a way that millennials witness personalized banking experiences intuitively at the speed of light.
Join us for a 45 minute Q&A session with best known experts from the fintech industry to discuss blockchain opportunities at banks and how effective their digital banking services can be made to address the heart of the blockchain use case: future-proofing the power of a smart digital ecosystem.
Hosted by – Krittika Banerjee, BFSI Research Analyst, Aspire Systems
In this talk, you will learn how managers or lawyers & accountants can write and read error free blockchain themselves using a higher natural programming language. Smart contracts are like real contracts, once referred to in the consideration of a real contract, there is a need to understand the smart contract.
OLE Natural blockchain language enables managers to produce error free executable blockchain code faster. The compiler does the work, generates executable Solidity for Ethereum or Quorum blockchains. More important than speed is that OLE makes that lawyers or managers can understand (R/W/Validate) blockchains and that code is error free. Blockchain is write only, hence errors cannot be removed!
OLE comes with a simple 2 STEP methodology to grantee ERROR FREE code: First, the OLE natural language input texts can be validated for correctness by domain experts. Second, compiler does the work and compiles to executable blockchain. The authors highlight further the need for a semantic blockchain.
Anja Bedford, Blockchain/DLT Lead at GTB Chief Digital Office at Deutsche Bank talks about the bank's blockchain POC and the learnings they had from these tests.
In which departments do you think blockchain still needs to mature? What can be done to speed up this process?

What is this Blockchain thing? What can you do with it? Where do you go from here?
David Siegel, Blockchain and Decentralization expert, is a web pioneer, author, and serial entrepreneur. He is the world’s first web designer, started one of the world’s first web-design agencies, and sold it to KPMG.
Tune in to this session where David will answer all of your Blockchain-related questions from the most basic, to the more complex.
We will walk you through our Innovation Tank’s journey into the blockchain, from discovery to the current development of a Proof of Concept (PoC). We will explain the choices we have made so far, from both business and technical perspectives, and will attempt to cover in simple terms the main difficulties and opportunities we have encountered. We are also hoping to give you a quick demo of our PoC to illustrate our point.Read more >
