Invisible BlockChain and Plasticity of Money – Adam Smith Meets Darwin to Buy Crypto Currency - Zeeshan-ul-hassan Usmani, Misk Foundation
This talk will compare evolution in nature (based on Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection), with similar processes happening in money, especially in the current iteration of money (cryptocurrencies), and the underlying BlockChain technology. The session will review the history and evolution of money up to this point, shortly explain Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, compare the similarities between evolution by natural selection in nature with evolution in BlockChain technology and cryptocurrencies, and will examine the potential paths for the BlockChain technology and cryptocurrencies to evolve in the future. The session will ask and facilitate the participants to come up with their own theory and practical example of blockchain of the future following Darwin's theory of evolution.

Reimagining Identity – and Re-Intermediating with Consumers - Through Blockchain - Dmitry Barinov, SecureKey
The current model for managing identity is quickly becoming unsustainable – costly, disjointed and all too fallible. But that’s about to change. SecureKey, along with a consortium of innovative partners, has developed and is launching next generation privacy-enhancing services to enable consumers to conveniently and privately assert identity information using trusted providers, such as banks, telcos and governments, helping them connect to critical online services with a digital credential they already have and trust, while ensuring that information is only ever shared with explicit user consent.

Consumers will soon have the ability to prove they are who they say they are, in person and online, with high trust and scalability by using the Verified.Me service built on IBM Blockchain utilizing Hyperledger Fabric v1.2. This digital identity and attribute sharing network will allow for the exchange of information, all the while ensuring no data is visible to the operator; that there is no central database or honeypot; that there is no central point of failure; that providers and receivers don’t know where information is going to or coming from through a triple-blind privacy approach; and that users are not being - and cannot be - tracked.

Code Faster with Concerto, Model-driven Blockchain Development - Matt Roberts & Dan Selman, Clause
Is the business logic in your chaincode hard to find because it is buried in code that is doing boilerplate JSON serialization and data validation? Are you developing REST APIs by hand for your domain model? Concerto to the rescue!

This talk introduces Concerto, a lightweight 100% JavaScript schema language and runtime. It works in both a Node.js process and in your browser. Concerto models can be converted to JSON Schema, XML Schema, Java, Go, Typescript, Loopback APIs, HTML web-forms and PlantUML diagrams. Concerto is used today with Hyperledger Composer, Fabric and the Accord Project's platform-independent implementation for smart legal agreements.

Empowering the Consumer – Revitalizing the Relationship Between the Consumer and Brand “Data is the New Bacon” - Lisa Marks, ChainNinja
Market research is an invaluable industry for every market; learning what the consumer likes and how they want it is vital. Unfortunately, the industry has not evolved since its inception in the 1950s. Since then both market trends and technologies have advanced considerably; it’s time for a rebirth. Enter the world’s first USPTO consumer opinion and behavioral data economy blockchain enabled survey. We now have a way to identify and capture consumer opinions and behavioral data in an ultra-secure and at the highest GDPR level 1 compliant manner.

ChainNinja Blockchain Solutions, world-class Blockchain development and advisory firm, as The Opinion Economy’s development partner, successfully developed and deployed the Opinion Economy’s blockchain network, which is leveraged to connect brands to consumers for survey research purposes. On Friday, October 5th, 2018, the newly developed OEB application was successfully deployed and demonstrated the capability to self-enroll its first Contact Agency, Survey Agency and group of Respondents. These parties were then able to complete an automated peer-to-peer transaction within minutes of enrollment, marking the first live transaction. identify and capture consumer opinions and behavioral data in an ultra-secure and at the highest GDPR level 1 compliant manner.

Data Privacy for Enterprise DLT Applications - David Nuñez, NuCypher
Traditional approaches to access control require one or more points of trust – a hardware security module or a centralized server managed by a data custodian. NuCypher provides a departure from this trust-dependent paradigm and introduces threshold split-key proxy re-encryption scheme (Umbral) – a combination of proxy re-encryption and decentralization – which enables performant permission management while preserving the encrypted state of the underlying data. Proxy re-encryption nodes provide re-encryption services without ever decrypting data. Cryptographic permissions are enforced through the issuance or revocation of re-encryption keys by data owners.

Cryptographer, NuCypher
David Nuñez is cryptographer at NuCypher. He specializes in proxy re-encryption, which was the topic of his PhD. He is also the author of Umbral, the proxy re-encryption scheme that supports the decentralized NuCypher network, and one of the core maintainers of its reference implementation... Read More →
