CHAIN PLUS will be held in Seoul Korea on January 23-24th, 2019.
Global leaders from around the world will gather to discuss and present various topics about blockchain industry, cryptocurrency, decentralized networks, economics, finance, etc.
Attendees will gain a wealth of insights and information about the state of blockchain industry through discussion and networking parties.
The Republic of Korea has made a great contribution to the blockchain and cryptographic industry.
To meet the public’s great interest in blockchain and expectations for further discussion, this event is held with world’s major blockchain project creators, developers, scholars, experts and blockchain enthusiasts.
We want to introduce blockchain technologies and projects that will be deeply embedded in people’s lives, introduce the application blockchain technologies that would lead to societal change, and create a heated debate about the impact the blockchain would have on the real world and economy.
We need to think about the necessity and directivity of global regulatory standard for blockchain as blockchain technology is rapidly developing. It’s because various issues such as cryptocurrency-related tax policy, exchange-related regulation, technology incentives, and blockchain-related startup technical support policy coexist.
Along with Internet governance, blockchain governance stands for organizations that autonomously determine policies in which more people can use blockchain and the technical standard that makes this possible. Now, essential definition, concept, and standardized guideline are necessary.
We would like to hold a forum for debate with the representatives of global top blockchain innovative countries and cities including Switzerland, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore, Estonia, Malta, and Lithuania to talk about why the role of governance is necessary for blockchain and discuss innovation methods to take lead in global standard. Also, we will not only discuss blockchain fostering plan and sensible regulation, but also debate about the future of blockchain technology which will be realized in our life and how to cooperate with and regulate it by policy.
Track 1Importance of blockchain global regulation standard
Enterprises are paying great attention to the development and investment in blockchain technology to create new economic value by combining with education, finance, medical care, transportation, manufacturing, distribution, and traditional industries in public sector, and to overcome limitations which ICBM (IoT, Cloud, Big Data, Mobile) platform of the 4th industrial revolution has.
It’s expected that blockchain will overcome limitations of original ICBM platform such as low security, privacy invasion, information monopoly, and high operation cost. We would like to talk about how enterprise businesses such as system, communication, data management and distribution can coexist and cooperate with public chain project.
Also, we want to have a forum for debate about the effectiveness of blockchain technology, how to solve issues which we encounter in business settings, and how to overcome difficulties which enterprises encounter in industrial settings through blockchain technology.
Track 2How can corporates utilize public chain?
Blockchain is evolving as a role of feasible solutions and governance that would change the ecosystem throughout the whole industry in the future. To address the challenges posed by these developments, various platforms, called third-generation digital currency, have emerged to improve scalability, speed, decentralization and provide their own decision-making functions within the platform.
Whether these improvements in technological functions such as changes in the consensus algorithm, introduction of distributed database management technology based on the Directed Aclic Graph (DAG), and introduction of Cardano platform with its own decision-making function to prevent hardfork are ready for applications and how developers think will be delivered directly by project creators and DApp developers.
Moreover, the application of blockchain technology to real-world businesses in data/AI, advertising, mobile services, healthcare and insurance, contents such as copyrights and games is gaining attention. We would like to investigate killer use case that will lead the market.
Track 3Blockchain 3.0 battleground for DAPPs
Solving financial infrastructure is a prerequisite for applications. Blockchain technology has tremendous potential to reduce capital costs, simplify processes, and increase the certainty and reliability of financial transactions. As the settlement of payment acted as a catalyst in the mobile era, the era of applications will have realized after stabilization of the financial infrastructure to be scalable and practical.
For blockchain technology to be utilized as an efficient technology with security and economic efficiency across the financial area, it requires stable medium for exchanges. As stable coin is expected to eliminate ineffectiveness and to be used in actual financial transactions, we would like to discuss in depth about the effectiveness and feasibility of regulations currently being reviewed.
Track 4Finance, the foundation of full blooming.
The era of investing in cryptographic money is over by just reading through the white papers of blockchain projects. Although a number of projects were able to fundraise for ICOs with only the blueprints presented in the white papers from last year to earlier this year, investors now focus on how feasible it is in the real world when making decisions. This led to increasing emergence of firms issuing Security Token Offering (STO) which abides by laws and regulations of securities.
STO is a practical way of issuing token based on real assets such as stock or real estate, and investors are assigned a portion of the profits according to the ratio of security tokens alike stockholders.
STO is not a new way of ICO. It seems like the movement of virtual market supplementing existing disadvantages and attempting to assimilate with systems. STO market is already taking actions. STO will become the standard of cryptocurrency industry based on strict evaluation and clear regulation of the authorities.
Track 5Beyond ICO, STO in the financial market
Transactions on cryptocurrency exchanges are vulnerable to hacking no matter how they strengthen security because exchanges themselves are not blockchain based platforms, rather regular sitesl.
DEX (decentralized exchange) was created to solve the problems of existing exchanges by eliminating central servers and lowered the risk of hacking but the question still remains as to whether resolving reliability can replace both user convenience and all the functions of existing exchanges.
In blockchain industry, institutional investors in traditional markets are still hesitant to enter. In addition, current investments in this market seem to target a payback period much shorter than in traditional markets. We’d like to invite investors from traditional markets as well as crypto investors to discuss what needs to be improved for institutional investors in traditional markets to enter and future prospects of investment market.
