Blockchain: strong links make a strong chain (N-sight)

Location:De Montil, Affligem-Essene


As companies and organisations assess the potential of Blockchain, they are asking: is this new technology worthwhile for us? Will it provide an added value or can we ignore it?  And if we have a good use case, how do we get started with a Blockchain project?


In this session, we will see how SD Worx and Isabel have taken on their own projects, and learn about their expectations and learnings.  Plus, SettleMint will share two real-live cases on tokenisation and best practices for a Blockchain project roadmap.

14:45 Tokenisation on Blockchain - from beer to banking


SettleMint will share two cases involving tokenisation in Blockchain. The first is in the domain of subsidy distribution at the Islamic Development Bank in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  The second is for a crowdfunding project for an authentic Belgian family brewery.


How do these projects compare? And how is the practical roadmap applied?

15:30 Building a practical application: Smart Paper


This story first zooms in on to the basics of Blockchain and IoT, then builds, step by step, to a case that is about to go live.  With 'smart paper', SD Worx aims at an easy transition between old and new, especially in an environment where paper is still crucial.  This goal can be rapidly achieved by coupling it to the philosophy of blockchain and the embedding of IoT. Pay checks that cannot be forged, tamper-proof money, exams, deeds, diplomas, etc….


This user case, demonstrates the practical potential of the Blockchain technology and its strengths and advantages. Paper is back – with a vengeance!

16:30 Building a Blockchain-based ecosystem? Do’s and don’ts from a real project!


Isabel is building a blockchain-based ecosystem for Belgian banks that will coordinate the effort of on-boarding new corporate customers, facilitating and speeding-up the process for the banks and the customer companies. Bringing several entities, often with different strategies, together for one common goal is not an easy exercise. We'll learn about the difficulties Isabel encountered and how these were solved .
