Blockchain is much more than the just technology behind Bitcoin. It is a public ledger to which everyone has access, but which no single person controls. It allows companies and individuals to collaborate with an unprecedented degree of transparency and trust. It is cryptographically secure, but fundamentally open.

The CEBIT Blockchain Summit will discuss how this game-changing technology may shape the future of the global economy, from healthcare to voting, from insurance claims to royalty payments.
