Do not miss out on the most updated Blockchain Summit!
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 in Singapore.

In this talk, I will look into multiple ways of fund-raising, this includes ICO, STO, crowdfunding platforms like kickstarter, Indigogo and traditional way of raising capital through public listing, IPO.
From 2017, we have seen ICO way of crowdfunding have been exploited by numerous projects, including exit scams, simple projects with inflated funds raised, projects failed or becoming too complacent after huge amount of funds raised, project teams that see ICO as free money from the public with no accountability and the list goes on. Will ICO be replaced by STO for crowdfunding in token forms of the sake of regulations and giving “sense of security” investors?
We are going to compare the differences of the fund raising methods, possible ways of restructuring the ways of raising capitals for promising startups, with regards to regulation of course!
From my research data, ICO brings about increase in number of successful startups and innovations, although percentage is still low at below 10%. We should look at how to correctly channel the funds to the more legitimate projects in a more prudence way, eg. project valuation underwritten by a 3rd party, limiting the amount of capital raised, funds payout in tranches.
To conclude, we should not limit innovations with too much regulations but at the same time, put in place measures for better due diligence.

Legal Industry commentators have often noted that the phrase “Legal Tech” may seem oxymoronic; as lawyers and the practice of law are often seen as “old school” and “conservative” the exact opposite of the modernity that is exemplified by technology. The winds of disruption have finally started sweeping through the legal services industry-and this has coincided perfectly with a refocus on how technology and indeed advanced technology applications such as blockchain can revolutionalise the services industry in general from enhancing the efficiency and security of transactions to obviating the need for intermediaries. The talk will cover some of the specific impacts of technology in the legal services space including:

While blockchain made the headlines for its use in cryptocurrency, a larger role resides in the way we create smart transaction between several parties. One exemple is traceability of food. Food is produce at a place, transformed at another and delivered to the customer for consumption most of the time at a great distance from its point of initiation. It is vital to ensure that all the steps in this process are executed properly to remove any risk of contamination and ultimately poisoning. Quality assurance in the chain has been traditionally left to random controls. Today, thanks to technology we are witnessing a complete change of paradigm. Low cost sensors can be placed along the chain to monitor the condition of the product and the way it is delivered. Using blockchain, the input from the sensors are fused into the string of data to form a trusted record that can be accessed at all levels, from the farmer to the end customer. In the same spirit, sensors are complementing blockchains in many other domain, from manufacturing to shipping, aerospace to insurance.

With many blockchain projects fundraising and limited capital available, only a few get the funds and continue growing after their launch. Unless blockchain projects have an optimal token and product economic design, with principles of evolutionary psychology and neuroscience baked into their products, it is impossible to have your blockchain product with strong incentives and sustainable community engagement in place.
As the top blockchain economics and governance advisory in the world (including PhDs in Economics from Harvard, Nobel laureate as their advisor, and many top blockchain projects their clients), Hayk and team help blockchain projects globally to have successful economics design of tokens and products.

There is an education problem throughout the world today. In the US youths spend average 9 hours a day online out of which 30% is spent on social media. This leds to a increasing attention deficiet in students.
As educators try to combat this digital poison, a new way of engagement presents itself. Unknown to many, the tokenized ecosystem is derived from the powers of gamification. In this talk, Daniel will share how gamification in the classroom can be enhanced by tokenization. And how tokenization may just bring in the next wave of gamebased learning.

Blockchain and AI seem to be on different ends of the spectrum. On the one hand, the strength of AI lies in data, powered by an open-source enviornment. Blockchain on the other hand seems to encourage centralized intelligence on closed data environments.
Against this context, Is blockchain and AI a winning combination? Are there ways to have AI and blockchain work together, towards a world that leverages on the benefits of both technologies? In this talk, we will cover the trends and prediction of AI and blockchain in 2019, as well as discuss about the symbiotic relationship between the two technologies.
