BLOCKWALKS 2018 - Blockchain conference

04 October 2018


Come and join us for the BLOCKWALKS - the first conference of its kind within the EU focusing on the future of the public sector using blockchain technology! The conference is organized by the Slovak civil association PUBLICUM under the expert patronage of world-renowned professional consulting firm BDO.

Don’t miss this opportunity and come to an exclusive venue of Bratislava castle on 10th October 2018 for this unique conference BLOCKWALKS full of blockchain enthusiasts and top governmental officials from around the world.

The industrial revolution in digitization and the rapid growth of blockchain technology is set to play a key role in advancing the public sector. Over the coming years, they will become irreplaceable and will strongly affect broader changes in our society as a whole. BLOCKWALKS has been organized to start an ongoing dialogue of how these changes can and will affect us and how these changes can be used for our good and progress.

Using blockchain technology has a big potential even in the public sector. BLOCKWALKS will allow specific government officials to see pilot projects dealing with the implementation of this technology in the public sector.

Speeches of international top experts in the area of blockchain technology of governmental officials who have already had an experience with blockchain in the public sector or see the opportunity for the public sector to improve will be part of the conference.

Over time, blockchain can help public sector digitize existing records and manage them within a secure infrastructure. IT departments may be able to create rules and algorithms (smart contracts), for instance, that allows data in a blockchain to be automatically shared with third parties once predefined conditions are met. In the longer term, the technology may even allow individuals and organizations to gain direct control over all the information the public sector keeps about them. This level of transparency could make it easier for the public sector to achieve networked public services.

Specific speeches will be complemented by the panel discussion and professional networking among governmental officials, investors, enthusiasts, exhibitors, educators, professors, professionals and developers in the area of new technologies.  We are convinced that the voice and knowledge of renowned speakers and experts will set the right direction in debates during this conference.

The renowned experts that will speak at BLOCKWALKS 2018 are:

  • Nick Szabo–Keynote speaker, Blockchain, cryptocurrency and smart contracts pioneer, so-called Satoshi Nakamoto, USA
  • Henrik Hjelte – CEO, Chromaway, Sweden
  • Max Kaye - Co-founder and CTO, SecureVote, Australia
  • Leonardo Gammar – CEO, Agora, Switzerland
  • Bruno Alves – Policy Advisor, European Commission Directorate General Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT), Belgium
