Crypto-Investing with David Siegel

Last year over $250 million was invested in companies and projects using blockchain technology and cryptographic tokens. This year we have seen about that much again just in the first four months. Token-based investments are rapidly turning into a significant asset class.

David Siegel, CEO of 20|30, will explain what kinds of tokens are being offered, real-life stories of token offerings, how to purchase tokens, how to watch for scams, smart investment strategies, and why you should get in early.

This is a 45-minute presentation with 15 minutes for questions.

  • Is code the new law? Regulation, Legality and Smart Contracts Oct 11 2017 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Ravikant Agrawal (Cognizant), Roderik van der Veer (SettleMint), Laurence Kirk (Extropy), Arnab Naskar (Innovationsforum)
    Regulation has been considered an obstacle when it comes to the adoption of blockchain technology. But many have taken on the challenge and have actively started to take blockchain and DLT as both a challenge and an opportunity.

    Join this panel where we will discuss:

    -ICOs, Self regulation of ICO, status of tokens in an ICO
    -How blockchain will affect existing market regulations
    -Which new regulations can we expect to respond to the ecosystem that blockchain has created?
    -How would the governance structure be determined?
    -How can the obstacle of a cross-border environment be tackled?
  • Mattereum - Pragmatic Smart Ledgers Without The Lawyers Oct 11 2017 8:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Professor Michael Mainelli, Co-founder of Z/Yen
    Much has been written about the power and scope of Smart Ledgers and Mutual Distributed Ledgers (MDLs, aka blockchains). Amidst the rush to find new applications for this versatile, ‘trustless’ technology, people overlook the challenge of governing Smart Ledger networks. Governance provides the mechanisms required to balance accountability of the governing body and its duty of meeting the specific objectives of the organisation.

    Effective governance of Smart Ledgers should answer four critical questions - How are rules created for the ledger and who oversees their application? What happens in the case of dispute? Who is allowed to change the software application and the data? How are security, risk and performance managed and reported?

    One approach is to embed these questions in existing legal structures, another to try to remain outside, but a third is to explore the appropriate role of arbitration, mediation, and expert determination, as far as possible avoiding enmeshing novel identity, document, and agreement exchanges within traditional legal structures.

    In this webinar, Professor Michael Mainelli will share research from the Mattereum initiative as well as Long Finance research sponsored by the Cardano Foundation. He will conclude that, while there is nothing new under the sun, Smart Ledgers may need to shift the balance of power from law, to code, to human wisdom.

  • A Secure Model of IoT Using Blockchain Oct 10 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Ahmed Banafa, Lecturer and IoT Expert, College of Engineering, San Jose State University
    As the Internet of Things (IoT) adds more and more devices to the digital fold every day, organizations of all sizes are recognizing the IoT's potential to improve business processes and, ultimately, accelerate growth.

    Meanwhile, the number and variety of IoT solutions has expanded exponentially, creating real challenges. Chief among them: the urgent need for a secure IoT model for performing common tasks such as sensing, processing, storing information, and communicating. But developing such a model involves overcoming numerous hurdles.

    Of course, there are multiple ways of looking at the IoT. For instance, the system view divides the IoT into blocks, such as connected things, gateways, network services, and cloud services, while the business view consists of platform, connectivity, business model, and applications. But one common thread connects all these views: security is paramount

    IoT applications and devices is the next wave of technology, but security is a big concern. This webinar will explain the convergence of IoT and Blockchain technology.
