Strategies to deliver mainstream market adoption for blockchain, IoT and AI

After its successful regional launches in Europe, America and Asia, S&P Global Platts Digital Commodities Summit returns to London this November for the second round of blockchain evolution.

In the first editions we looked at proof-of-concept for blockchain in commodities markets. For 2018, we will continue to assess innovative pilot blockchain trading initiatives, while debating the key challenges of rolling out commercial models and delivering mainstream market adoption.

We will also discuss which sectors are witnessing blockchain activity and why, and how others can learn from their experiences. How the technology affects you, your organization and industry. And what the overriding opportunities and challenges are. Not just for blockchain technology, but also for the internet-of-things, big data and artificial intelligence.
