Demystifying the blockchain

What is it, why is it useful, and how it might impact your business

Blockchain, also known as Distributed Ledger Technology, is an emerging technology with a number of potential applications. It is touted as a new type of business-improvement software.

But what does the technology mean for your business or industry, and how might you transact using blockchain technology? And how do you go about understanding the blockchain landscape, the blockchain projects occurring within your industry and whether/when blockchain technology should form part of your business-strategy?

Accenture, Hall & Wilcox and Stone & Chalk invite you to a panel discussion which will consider the lifecycle of a blockchain project. Our panellists will explore key commercial and legal issues relating to the design, build and implementation of a blockchain solution, including intellectual property and financial services regulatory considerations.

The panel members are:

Frank Chila, Director of Legal Services, Accenture Australia & New Zealand
John Bassilios, Special Counsel – Financial Services, Hall & Wilcox
Karen Cohen, General Manager, Blockchain Centre, Melbourne
Alan Tsen, General Manager, Stone & Chalk Melbourne

A Q&A session will follow the presentations.

The interactive discussion will be chaired by Ben Hamilton (IP and Technology partner, Hall & Wilcox).

The discussion aims to improve your understanding of the blockchain landscape and how the technology might impact your business.
