      Equity or Coins?

      11:00am – 11:40am May 14
      Innovation in early stage finance shot to global attention and fuelled a boom from the first killer app for blockchain technology. This boom has forced a steep learning curve on venture capitalists and other investors who suddenly need a plan to adapt and compete with a global market. These three investors developed strategies early and had a tremendous perch to understand all the change. This panel tracks their ‘ah-ha’ moments, how they’ve managed change, and what this innovation means for the investment industry going forward.

      Mining Boom

      “If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die”. Early miners headed Warren Buffet’s wise words and were among the first successes in the market that grew around bitcoin. Specialized equipment with a high upgrade frequency, energy powerhouses that aim to lure miners, and new jobs with forks, new blockchains, and staked nodes, the industry seems set for unlimited growth.

      In the early days of Bitcoin, there was an idea that the lack of incumbent financial infrastructure in some developing economies as an opportunity for cryptocurrency innovation to blossom. Nature abhors a vacuum, after all. That lure attracted some of the brightest minds in the business. This panel brings these pioneers together to hear their thoughts after four years of development and entrepreneurship to find out if these markets will lead innovation and light the way for the rest of the world.

      Balance Between Privacy and Compliance

      12:00pm – 12:30pm May 14
      Legislators have a unique role to play in the development of the blockchain revolution. The incredible power of cryptography placed in the hands of individuals is at once a challenge for KYC compliance and an opportunity to protect the privacy of individuals. In this new world, legislators must create tools to fight money laundering and terrorism financing while also protecting against identity theft. This panel looks at the high wire routine of both a US and EU legislator as they seek this balance.

      The Race Towards Interoperability

      1:30pm – 2:10pm May 14
      Between all the public and private chains, there exists a tangle of platforms that have made tradeoffs between security, privacy, efficiency, flexibility, ease of use, and governance. This panel will look at ability for these chains to interoperate as an important scaling solution unlocked from new network effects: assets transferred from one chain to another, escrow schemes, and all types of information flow — an ‘identity chain’ linked to a commodities market, for example.

      The global, borderless nature of blockchain technology remains a challenge for individual jurisdictions. Nations have taken a patchwork of different approaches, some similar, some at cross-purposes with each other. All of this has led to important discussions about the role self regulating organizations can play in building a system that will balance the requirements of these nations along with the privacy and confidentiality needs of people and markets. This panel convenes the technical, regulatory, and industry leaders needed to orchestrate a solution.

      On-Device Key Management

      3:10pm – 3:50pm May 14
      Bitcoin introduced a new need for people to manage and secure their own private cryptographic keys. This need was filled by a boom in the creation of digital wallets that store, manage and generate keys. An unintended consequence of this has led to the development of sophisticated and bespoke microchips that can help integrate machines into our contractual relationships and secure the development of the IoT through on-device key management.

      Bitcoin has failed to live up to its promise of becoming a universal payment system due to inherent scaling issues of its blockchain. Bitcoin-express is a permission-less, open protocol that enables a global cash-like payment solution for the digital age. People may hold and transfer multiple cryptocurrencies – in a browser based Wallet – for payments, money transfer and exchange. This low cost, decentralized system will achieve better than Visa scale with minimal impact on any blockchain.

Challenges will soon arise in addressing the regulatory requirements for such cross border supply chains and their payment mechanisms. Join us for a panel that will discuss these challenges, from retail and consumer goods to highly regulated products.

      Coral Health is a healthcare blockchain technology company led by a management team with over 30 years combined experience in healthcare and consisting of successful entrepreneurs, Harvard-educated technology and data science professionals, medical scientists, and key health policy experts. Coral Health’s mission is to become a catalyst for a future of interconnected testing methodologies, genomics data protocols, secure health technologies, and real-time patient access platforms. We’re developing blockchain-powered solutions that accelerate care delivery, automate multiparty administrative processes, and improve health outcomes by enabling secure, real-time, shared access to validated healthcare information. We’re driving adoption of our system from the ground up with targeted enterprise applications that provide immediate operational benefits to healthcare providers, labs, payers, and pharmaceutical companies. As more entities join our ecosystem, individualized benefits scale to powerful network effects through incentivized data exchange.

      Rich healthcare information exists today but it is all too often inaccessible. This impedes healthcare delivery resulting in a lack of personalized care, excessive medical costs and sub-optimal patient outcomes. As a result, patients are suffering as they are forced to wait unnecessarily for much needed therapies and procedures, doctors are left spending an inordinate amount of time mired in paperwork, and there is over $1.3 trillion of wastage in the US healthcare sector today— much of this stemming from the lack of data interoperability. We finally have been given a solution through blockchain technology and Coral Health is committed to leveraging blockchain to build a more connected future of healthcare.

      To realize our vision, we’re focusing heavily on building partnerships and aggressively developing product. We believe in creating both short term and long term value for health care entities and that that is what is going to drive participation in a productive healthcare ecosystem predicated on data security and sharing. Coral Health is excited to be presenting at Consenus 2018 and will be sharing its vision, adoption strategies, product development roadmap and a demo of its patient control mobile application.

        The Bitcoin Blockchain has become one of the most popular blockchains in the world – and for good reason. It provides a wide array of security features and functionality to keep assets safe. But writing code on top the Bitcoin Blockchain has proven to be difficult, and it’s for this reason that an alternative blockchain, Emercoin, has begun to take off in a big way. Launched in 2013, Emercoin is an emerging leader in secure, distributed blockchain business services. It is a unique blockchain based on bitcoin’s original code, so it offers the same security and reliability, but it also allows users the flexibility to code programs in a hassle-free environment. For anyone considering a blockchain for their business needs, Emercoin is a must-see. And you can see it for yourself at this demo led by Emercoin representatives. You will learn about Emercoin’s suite of tech solutions and how you can use it to make your own business more secure and more efficient.
