  • Oracle Corporation 500 Oracle Pkwy, Room 971 Redwood City, CA 9406

A dynamic review of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain technologies will be provided including a background and classification of technologies. This program will touch on the various issues raised for attorneys, regulators, and security professionals when considering the growth and future evolution of the space. We will cover some of the key issues in this dynamic landscape from touching on "smart contracts" (are they really that smart?), to high level security issues, to challenges being faced by regulators and lawmakers. We will also review how to view blockchains in industry versus those being used by startups and why these are not the same. This is not a hype session, but a realistic look at what's happening, so that you may better assess the impact it will have on your world.
