These will include:

• Killian Stokes of Moyee Coffee, partners in the world’s first blockchain coffee project bringing transparency to the industry.
• Using the Irish beef industry as an example, the Deloitte team will outline how blockchain will equip supply chain industries with the ability to provide market regulators and consumers with a new level of transparency and assurance in product quality and safety.
• Stephen Moran of Bank of Ireland will share details of working through a proof of concept trial which has demonstrated the disruptive but positive impacts in relation to trade reporting, transaction histories etc and how it will be relevant to future banking experiences.
• Rob Leslie, Sedicii, will take us to the important world of identity management to manage controllable, trustworthy, and verifiable digital credentials.
• & more….
