  • Key takeaways from government blockchain projects


10:40 AM INTERNATIONAL KEYNOTE: STANDARDISATION, THE QUINTESENTIAL BLOCKCHAIN HURDLE - Can Blockchain continue to exist without the common industry standards?

  • How can businesses ensure trust in such a fragmented ecosystem
  • Can businesses still benefit from blockchain despite the lack on centralised standards and how?
