BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY: PRACTICAL CASES FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION

Blockchain has burst onto the scene as a new transversal technology that combines easy use, low cost, high security and transparency, creating a new foundation of trust in information management and contributing to a considerable simplification and acceleration of industrial processes on all levels.

Besides being used in financial operations, it is perceived that it can provide great opportunities for launching new business models thanks to thedistributed nature of its technology, the immutability of its registers, and its capacity to execute decentralised logic through intelligent contracts.

This session will feature four practical cases of Blockchain technologies applied to industry in a diverse range of sectors. This seminar is part of the Block4COOP project financed by Interreg SUDOE.

FIRST BLOCK4COOP CONFERENCE: BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY

Blockchain has burst onto the scene as a new transversal technology that combines user-friendliness, low cost, high security and transparency, creating a new foundation of trust in information management and contributing to a considerable simplification and acceleration of industrial processes on all levels.

In addition to its use in financial transactions, it is perceived to be able to provide great opportunities to launch new business models due to the distributed nature of its technology, the immutability of its records, and its ability to execute decentralised logic through smart contracts.

This session, aimed at both SMEs and Start-ups, is the first of four technical seminarswhich will deal with the benefits of this technology, show practical cases and visit reference centres where it is being implemented.

WEBINAR: BLOCKCHAIN AND PUBLIC TENDERING

The private sector is beginning to take a look at Blockchain technology. However, there are very few user experiences in the public sector. The public tender distributed ledger system is a project that was started up in 2018 by the Government of Aragón, making it the most important public administration Blockchain technology user at the time. It is a pioneering project, as it uses highly disruptive technology in such an important field as public tendering, which represents 18% of Spain’s GDP. It also serves as a point of contact with companies, for whom, in this case, the use of Blockchain technology ensures transparency in the procedure and integrity of its offers, values that are added to the increased efficiency of administrative procedures in public tendering.

In the afternoon of June 9 we will have the ideologist and executor of this project, which is currently being used to process the many tenders managed by the Government of Aragón.

AGENDA
– Framework and next steps for the BLOCK4Coop Project
– The added value of distributed ledger technology applied to administrative procedures.
– The distributed ledger of public tender offers of the Government of Aragón.
– Questions from the floor.

WEBINAR: REINVENTING CAPITAL MARKETS

Blockchain has burst onto the scene as a new transversal technology that combines: low cost, traceability, high security and transparency. Thanks to this technology, the tokenisation of assets is now changing the financial industry, leading to an optimisation of processes and providing a secure, much more efficient and low-cost access.
This tokenisation eliminates intermediaries in the marketing of assets and facilitates liquidity in the market. Equally, it offers access to retail investors and professionals, offering access to certain types of assets that were inaccessible to many investors until now.
In this session we will learn about the way in which Blockchain and tokenisation can help overcome current difficulties in company funding and the vision of different types of investors and financial regulators. It will give us an insight into the future prospects for the procurement of investment and debt thanks to Blockchain.

PROGRAMME:
– Situation of Capital Markets. Current difficulties in company funding.
– The development of Blockchain and tokenisation in Spain and the rest of the world over recent years: ICOs, STOs, DSOs, IEOs, etc.
– A vision of different types of investors: institutional, professional and retail.
– Future prospects for the procurement of investment and debt thanks to Blockchain.
– Personal story: Portfolio.exchange

Aimed at investors, professionals, SMEs and large companies interested in Blockchain applications in capital and funding markets
