May 15 2019, 9 a.m. – 10 a.m.
The technology most likely to change the enterprise and the global economy has arrived, and it’s not big data, the cloud, the social web, mobility or even artificial intelligence. It’s blockchain. The Internet of Information is evolving into the Internet of value—a new, distributed platform that can reshape business and fix the old order of human affairs for the better. Blockchain can transform financial services; change the deep structures of the corporation; animate the Internet of Things; recast the role of government, and help solve the crisis of legitimacy of democracy. New blockchain-based business models will disrupt most industries. This Internet of Value has profound implications for government revenue, taxes and how governments are funded.
