Blockchain, Linux, and Open Source Innovation - Matthew Golby-Kirk & Adam Jollans, IBM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Open source has become a hub for innovation, and one of the most exciting new use cases is Blockchain - a shared, immutable ledger for recording the history of transactions, which enables global businesses to transact with less friction and more trust. IBM is a founding member of the Hyperledger project at the Linux Foundation, and is actively contributing code, as well as working with a range of clients on Blockchain technology, and providing a test network for developers. This session will explain what Blockchain is and why it is important, show a demo of Blockchain in action, and discuss early customer implementations of Blockchain in practice.
