About the event

National banks and regulators, exchanges and investment banks across the world are taking seriously the financial innovation of distributed ledger or block chain technology. The block chain, aka Trust Machine underpins "crypto currencies" such as Bitcoin; but it goes beyond digital money. It provides a shared, trusted, public ledger that everyone can inspect, but no single user controls. It is at the cusp of revolutionising international money transfers, trade finance, syndicated lending and collateral management, among other applications. As it allows for almost instantaneous payments and settlement, the potential impact on the role of traders, quants and other financial technologists cannot be underestimated.

This conference brings together Block Chain technologists in the finance sector, regulators, industry commentators, computer science researchers and others involved in financial innovation; these experts explore some of the technology and the many applications of Block chain in Financial Services.

X Topic Abstract

At the moment Blockchain technology is used to transact in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. However, Blockchain could be used for a number of applications. Somewhat akin to laser, invented for military purposes and finally ended up in CD/ DVD/ Bluray players

Blockchain is a distributed ledger that allows storage of transactions in a decentralised manner

Some of the risks that come to the top of my mind are: -

Distributed ledger is a good idea. But an attack on one part of the system could well affect the rest because transactions have to be shared across nodes Bitcoin has fluctuated wildly. Market risk is high

Problem of double payments have not been solved. Same coin could be used for doing two different transactions or make double payments, admittedly rare Smart contracts may not be covered by insurance

Regulation is yet to evolve to deal with the new currency

KYC & AML yet to evolve

Anonymity could lead to money laundering through use of Bitcoin

Use of malicious software to make smart contracts make payments prematurely before contingent event

Privacy issues to be addressed

Popular only if transacting in legacy currencies

Other risks will be added in the presentation.

I'm Sumukh Shetty, co-founder at Automte. Automte is working on building next generation decentralised applications using the ethereum blockchain. The first step to achieve that goal is to build a fully automated microexchange for buying ethers. Our product is in the MVP stage now.

We believe that blockchain will be playing an important function in society, just like the internet. We see that this is India's opportunity to build world class applications and our vision is to facilitate it as much as we can, hence the speaking engagement. We work from Bangalore.

I will be talking about the potential of the ethereum blockchain, give a basic understanding of how it works, and what are some of the interesting projects on the ethereum blockchain.

X Topic Abstract

An embedded sensor can provide an indelible history of parts from manufacture and assembly through the supply chain, potentially including critical events that affect life or scheduled maintenance. This information can be shared with supply chain partners, OEM and regulators in secure way.

There are two challenges to maintaining something with life limited parts. The first is that each component of a complex system can be difficult to track. Manufacturer, production date, batch number and the manufacturing machine program are not always known. Second, without a standard record detailing where the part came from and how it is currently being used and maintained, unnecessary or overdue maintenance may occur. A shared IoT and blockchain ledger maintains a record for usage, maintenance, warranty work and replacement parts. In the case of a recall situation, it can pinpoint specific batches of parts that may fail rather than require a broad retraction.

With the use IoT and blockchain with sensors and mobile technology for asset management and part tracking Business value of blockchain for maintaining life-limited parts You can achieve greater transparency of true history when you have proof of good parts, completed maintenance and certifications, and clean documents. This also increases confidence and safety because replacement part origin and all service are indelibly recorded. And insurers, lenders, and warranty service providers can recognize new business opportunities.

X Topic Abstract

Existing Proof of Work (PoW) consensus algorithm hampers scalability and performance of Blockchain network for enterprise usage.

Proof of Work requires huge processing for block generation so whoever has better mining power can generate blocks and hence the whole process becomes centralized. There are other consensus protocols like Proof of Stake (PoS) that make Blockchain more scalable and efficient because participant can mine or vote depending on tokens or coins are held by participants. PoS works better in a private network

Decentralization carries a performance cost. A trust model with more efficient consensus protocol , achieving better latency & throughput with less computation, bandwidth & storage is required to overcome performance issue in decentralized structure. Proof of stake(PoS) and Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT) consensus protocols with a small number of pre-designated trusted entities can remove many of the scaling & performance obstacles in the network.

X Topic Abstract

With the faster maturity and stability of scores of edge technologies (sensors, actuators, chips, controllers, tags, beacons, etc.), all kinds of common, casual and cheap things in our everyday environments are getting digitised systematically. The digitised elements are capable of demonstrating smart behavior. Similarly every kind of our personal and professional devices are getting interconnected automatically to share their unique capabilities with one another. Precisely speaking, there is a kind of seamless and spontaneous integration between physical systems at the ground level and off-premise cyber /virtual systems. This kind of digital empowerment is to lead a series of technology-sponsored innovations, disruptions and transformations for the total humanity. There are a few crucial challenges being associated with these phenomenal and path-breaking digital transformation. Due to the growing diversity and multiplicity of digitised systems, connected devices and software applications, the IT complexity is bound to grow rapidly in the days to unfurl. Further on, the security implications of the digital era are also manifold and massive. We read, hear and even experience the unique contributions of the Blockchain technology lately especially for providing impenetrable and unbreakable security for enterprise-class systems and data sources. In this talk, I am going to dig deeper and dwell at length on the application of the fast-growing Blockchain technology for ensuring utmost security for IoT devices and data. There are several real-world and real-time use cases of IoT and the role of Blockchain technology for futuristic IoT technology is all set to explode

X Topic Abstract

Financial services run primarily on one aspect - Trust. This very basis of financial transactions is human-centric even today. With introduction of Blockchain this all is poised to change. The Trust would be based on technology and various cryptographic algorithms that would be embedded along with the Blockchain. This whether it is new asset issuance or loan syndication or payments or trade finance or commercial financing everything can be driven basis this technology. Riding on top of this is enormous power of Blockchain that will allow people availability of data with compete security. Thus a consortium of organizations running Blockchain solutions - homogeneous or heterogeneous, stands to be representing next gen era for financial services.
