The crypto revolution brought along with it the underlying technology of blockchain, allowing for the tokenisation of monetary value. The benefits of blockchain technology have since been utilised not only for value, but also to tokenise any kind of digital and physical property, such as diamonds, rights to images, property etc. What the concept of tokenisation brings to the financial world is the ability to connect, share and create value globally, without borders, and for free. Blockchain has given us the technology to bring together different financial silos, giving individuals, communities and entire economies more access to the financial network; and creating an open, inclusive and empowering global economy. Circle is on a mission to make this vision of the future happen.
What does the transportation and mobility sector need? And, what can blockchain provide?
Together we tackle the most pressing questions facing the mobility sector.
Uber and Lyft are not the end of the mobility innovation cycle. From the humble car to complex smart cities, by considering a broader context we'll explore what currently isn't working and why. Blockchain is a toolkit, with numerous applications. Are there challenges in mobility blockchain is uniquely qualified to solve?

Manufacturing is going through a deep transformation, with changes that all are all about digitalization. With Industry 4.0, digitalization is more visible and disruptive in manufacturing, expanding virtual data and processes in an industry that is fundamentally about dealing with physical products.
This transformation has already started and its impact is expected to be massive, with changes across the whole manufacturing ecosystem technically, economically, and socially. Key elements of the Industry 4.0 transformation include 3D printing, robotizing and automation, smart factory with IoT and machine learning, and supply chain digitization.
Now, blockchain is becoming a key technology driving this digital revolution.
Join us for this webinar hosted by some of our best blockchain subject matter experts to learn:
● The impacts of technology on the manufacturing industry
● Why blockchain is a valuable technology for next-generation manufacturing use cases
● How blockchain is applicable to different areas of manufacturing
If we’re all going to learn, let’s learn together. Don’t repeat the mistakes of others. Don’t reinvent the wheel.
On today's agenda:
1. VISA — B2B Connect (B2B payment system tackling cross-border, cross-currency payments)
2. World Food Program — Building Blocks (Pilot in Jordan to tackle aid via blockchain-based identity)
3. DeBeers — Tracr (Clear the supply chain of imposters and conflict minerals)
Did you know that 59% of fish labeled as 'tuna' in grocery markets and restaurants around the globe were mislabeled according to a study conducted by Ocean in 2013. This is clearly a common problem faced by multiple industries.

Last year’s crypto-boom has driven huge interest and aggressive development of enterprise applications for blockchain technology, particularly in financial services. To date, however, the industry has yet to see meaningful production implementations, leaving many skeptical of blockchain as a solution still looking for a problem.
David Lee, a technology & digital consultant for BCS Consulting, argues that projects seeking enterprise adoption need to move past technology questions and look more closely at how blockchain solutions are governed. Drawing on his experience working with several blockchain initiatives, bank innovation teams and startups, he outlines the issues with existing governance models and the criteria that blockchain projects need to meet in order to be viable at enterprise production scale.
In Part 1, we discussed the algorithms and data structures used in a blockchain. In Part 2, we will use them to build a cryptocurrency and discuss the Consensus, Proof of Work, Applications, and Scalability.

Currency has been many things over the ages. First, it was barley, salt and cattle. It then became metal, mostly gold and silver. Representational currency came next, where pieces of paper represented holdings in gold or silver. Then fiat became the norm, where the currency's value was supported only by the government issuing it. Crypto-currencies have now entered the scene and are believed by many to be setting the stage for the next shift in currency. The question remains: What will it take to drive adoption and allow digital currencies to replace fiat as the major form of currency on the planet?

A tidal wave of change is coming to the world of Economic Science. Digital tokens—including bitcoin, altcoins, and cryptocurrencies—will require a fundamental rethinking of valuation, in the same way that the introduction of the stock market required a new understanding of value.
As of this writing, the total value of all tokens stands at $500 billion. How do investors place value on computer code, with no central bank or physical asset to support it?
Drawing from the literature on behavioral economics and tools from cognitive psychology, we aim to provide the first anchor to understand the criteria that investors are deploying to value new digital assets, making this the first study of applied behavioral economics on token valuation.
Using a new instrument called the Framework for Token Confidence, we show how value can be created out of “thin air,” and how tokens, and indeed the entire economic system, operate as something like a “vote of confidence.”
Individuals and businesses en masse are realizing the potential of blockchain, and are eager to invest in the vast and growing number of products and solutions this revolutionary technology has produced. There are huge gains and losses to be made from investing in crypto; getting an understanding of blockchain technology is pretty essential for everyone in looking to enter.
Though, even with an investment background, things can get complicated fairly quick. With so much advice out there, it’s difficult, if not seemingly impossible, to find the signal amongst the noise.
Decentrl has partnered with BIGA to cut through the noise. We are a boutique consultancy that advises fellow blockchain startups, enterprises, and governments on crypto-economics, investor relations, business development, and community building, and have collectively raised over $600M.
Together, our team of analysts, community leaders, and investors bring you an insightful webinar so you and your network can be given a straightforward introduction to the complex and sensational world of crypto.
