Blockchain, often described as a distributed ledger, allows for public decentralized transactions without the need for third-party intervention. And since the interaction is public, blockchain technology offers a reliable, incorruptible infrastructure. Is this security value just limited to cryptocurrency or can it influence network designs? How can/does blockchain’s reliable peer-to-peer communication model lend itself to more effective IoT ecosystems, software defined networking and even Blockchain-as-a-Transport (BaaT)? This roundtable will explore blockchain network developments, opportunities and what’s next, including the top 3-5 ways to efficiently leverage the power of blockchain technology to provide more reliable networks internationally.
