The 2018 BYU Blockchain Summit brings preeminent scholars, practitioners, and thought leaders to Utah, one of the foremost centers of technological innovation in the United States, to further the conversation of how blockchain technology is transforming markets, institutions, digital relationships, and civic life.
The 2018 BYU Blockchain Summit explores the impact of this new technology in a variety of domains, including: cryptocurrencies and ICOs, law and regulation, fintech, real estate and property ownership and transactions, digital identity, and an insightful discussion of the threats and opportunities that blockchain poses to our current systems of business, communication, security, and social interactions.
