Symposium: Can The World Run on Blockchains? The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Symposium on Decentralized Blockchain technology and its manifold applications such as smart contracts and cryptocurrencies.

Decentralized Blockchain technology and its manifold applications such as smart contracts and cryptocurrencies are intensively discussed in industry and academia. Although decentralization has many advantages such as being more resilient to cyberattacks and offering fair distribution of revenues, the further adoption of blockchain technology faces fundamental challenges including poor scalability and security vulnerabilities with potentially fatal consequences, but also economic and legal questions related to emerging applications and technology transfer, for example, in the domain of Internet of Things (IoT).

The goal of this symposium is to address these interdisciplinary challenges with some of the leading experts on blockchain technology from both academia and industry.

Organizers:

Prof. Sebastian Faust and Prof. Ahmad-Reza Sadeghi, TU Darmstadt
Prof. Philipp Sandner, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management
Claudia Prediger, CAST e.V.
