The Blockchain Conference 2018 will bring together a diverse range of experts who will discuss all the opportunities, challenges and exciting possibilities in innovation and disruption that can be leveraged in Los Angeles using this technology.

National banks and regulators, exchanges and investment banks across the world are taking seriously the financial innovation of distributed ledger or block chain technology.

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.

The event features an inspiring day of talks and workshops by professional speakers focused on Blockchain technology and Innovation.

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

The entertainment industry has seen major changes in the past century regarding technical innovations. We have progressed from radio, to television, to cable, to video on demand, to digital streaming and are now in the era of blockchain. When Netflix launched original content such as House Of Cards, the field was revolutionized. We could now binge. The current platform for distribution of content is controlled by a few powerful individuals, who have influence over budgets, capital returns, marketing and project scope.

Blockchain will transform the entertainment industry by bringing content creators to users. Content producers will take much of the power that was in the hands of distributors. This presentation will discuss the impacts blockchain will have on the creation, distribution, and marketing of content through smart contracts, establishing a reputation system allowing micrometering & micromonetizing, promoting dynamic & efficient pricing, and establishing transparent peer-to-peer transactions.

My topic will be covering the educational transformations surrounding blockchain technology, and how university ecosystems are adapting to support the growth of the industry. This growth revolves around student organizations, to curriculum classes, and even consulting groups that are supported by large universities around the world. We are seeing a shift in the way information is taught to students (through digital mediums) and now blockchain is among one of those topics. I can expand more on the experience I have had with growing one of the largest blockchain communities on the West Coast through a university platform.
