Overview

Blockchain is far more than a platform for a currency, it is a platform for decentralizing the web of applications in a profoundly secure way. BlockWorld is the largest convergence of Blockchain developers and IT managers seeking exposure to the newest technologies for building blockchain-based and decentralized apps in FinTech, Healthcare, Government, Enterprise, and the Consumer space.

2018 Theme: Developing the Decentralized Cloud

At BlockWorld, we believe that blockchain, smart contracts, and decentralized apps are just the beginning of a larger move towards developing a decentralized cloud. Instead of one company or one cloud managing / owning your data, identity, or app, blockchain makes it possible for decentralized data, decentralized ownership, decentralized identity, decentralized infrastructure and software. This is a paradigm shift away from the monolithic cloud towards the decentralized cloud. Come and learn how to develop on the decentralized cloud.

Discover Financial Innovation

Blockchain represents one of the most disruptive technologies to the finance industry. From distributed ledgers and cryptocurrency to an identity security and a decentralized cloud of financial activity, both Fortune 500’s and startups are finding innovative ways to apply blockchain technology to the financial sector. Come learn about the future of the financial industry.

Enterprise Identity & Security

Learn about how blockchain will change the enterprise implementation of identity & security. Blockchain represents a new cryptographically secure decentralized database of identity information, and innovative companies are finding new ways to deploy enterprise identity & security on a large scale.

Imagining Internet 2.0

Blockchain is not just changing the concept of money and finance, it is changing the way we think about the cloud itself. Imagine a single decentralized cloud of software, data, identities, activities. This would result in a new ecosystem and platform for all future decentralized apps.

Ethereum & Smart Contracts Innovation

A great deal of blockchain innovation is based on ethereum and smart contract innovation. How do you develop on ethereum and what are the applications of smart contract development?
