Anyone attending the largest digital asset event in the Midwest will soon discover that blockchain has long since passed the proof-of-concept stage. The second annual Voice of Blockchain will take place from September 30 to October 1, 2019, at Venue SIX10, a unique event space on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue that offers a breathtaking panorama of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan. The conference will showcase a variety of practical applications that demonstrate how, a decade after its birth, blockchain is finding its voice.
The Voice of Blockchain agenda is packed two days & three stages of fireside chats, presentations, panels, and keynote addresses on an amazing range of practical use cases. In addition, with more than 1,000 participants expected to attend, the gathering will offer ample opportunities for networking.
“VOB attracts an incredibly inclusive and high caliber of both presenter and attendee. And the impressive breadth and depth of topics covered truly prepares attendees to be on the leading edge of what really matters in the ecosystem.” said Associate Dean at UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law and Director of its Blockchain, Cryptocurrency and Law online professional certificate program, Tonya Evans, who was included at the House Financial Services hearings about Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency.
With program offerings organized into three different tracks, participants will have plenty to see and experience. The corporate & enterprise track will be comprised of presentations such as ‘A Healthcare Story: The Synaptic Health Alliance’, which will illustrate the use of blockchain in improving patient outcomes. This conversation between Mike Jacobs of Optum and Kyle Culvery of Humana will dive into business and technical lessons learned as they tell the story of how and why this consortium was built – from ideation to production.
The digital assets & markets track will include engaging fireside chats such as ‘Crypto Market Dynamics: From Venture to Derivatives’ with Colleen Sullivan, CEO of CMT Digital, a prominent investor and trading firm in digital assets and Lynne Marek a senior journalist with Crain’s Chicago Business. TD Ameritrade’s Head of Digital Assets, Sunayna Tuteja will share her outlook on the cryptomarkets as an event sponsor. This track includes curated information and conversations for large asset managers and family offices looking to understand market dynamics, custody solutions, and the views of regulators such as FINRA and CFTC who will both have speakers.
On the impact & innovation track, fireside chats and panel discussions – such as ‘Privacy as a Human Right’ led by Todd Weaver and Tor Bair – will dissect a variety of issues around privacy in device and cloud computing. Other thought leaders include Nadine Strossen (20-year ACLU president), Rumi Morales of Outlier Ventures, and Gabriel Jimenez, a political refugee from Venezuela.
