About Hong Kong BlockChain Summit 2018

The revolutionary development of decentralized database and state of the art cryptography have made blockchain technology applicable to store and share health records, to settle transactions, to verify voter identity, to retrieve legal documents, to create a trusted platform for donation, and most importantly to scale up productivity and market potential for different sectors. By connecting over 500 industry leaders, experts, tech innovators and investors from all around the world, the Summit will take advantage of Hong Kong's strength as a technology and investment hub to produce compelling and insightful conversations about big evolution ahead. Besides keynote speeches on different perspective and sectors, there will be three panels to discuss rising trends of blockchain application and its 2019 outlook.
