Comtrade Digital Services Blockchain hosted an Enterprise Blockchain Adoption event
POSTED ON 12.06.2019
Bearing in mind that the blockchain ecosystem in Ireland is constantly growing, Comtrade Digital Services wanted to give its contribution by stepping into Blockchain Ireland Week and organizing an event shaped around Enterprise Blockchain Adoption.
Blockchain Ireland Week, powered by Blockchain Ireland, brought together entrepreneurs, developers and corporate leaders over 7 days this May to highlight solutions and opportunities in blockchain around the island of Ireland.
It was a perfect opportunity for the blockchain community to have panel discussions, talks, workshops, under the following tracks: Corporate, Developer, Design, Social Impact and Start-ups.
Throughout the week, we listened to and enjoyed great sessions, but we saved the best for last.
Comtrade Digital Services hosted an event with Enterprise Blockchain Adoption as the main topic.
Dejan Cusic, Business Director IRL&UK at Comtrade Digital Services, showcased latest report findings on blockchain and presented some of Comtrade Digital Services’ blockchain based projects. Dejan also put the spotlight on Comtrade’s recently announced blockchain partnership with ConsenSys.
Besides Dejan, Dave Feenan, Innovation Programmes Manager for Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet, spoke about new MSc in Blockchain. This Masters in Blockchain (Distributed Ledger Technologies) is the first of its kind in Ireland and will ensure the country has all the skills necessary to become a global hub for this technology.
John Woods, Lead Solution Architect/Cryptographer from ConsenSys, also was part of a discussion about Ethereum, privacy issues and reasons why to use (or not to use) specific cryptocurrencies within your daily operations. We tackled issues regarding industries that are set to be disrupted the most by blockchain and shared use cases from Comtrade’s business experience.
We would like to thank the amazing audience for asking so many interesting questions, being eager to share their thoughts and to find out more about blockchain. We know one thing for sure, our interactive panel discussion had people concluding their day full of impressions.
It was really a celebration of the blockchain community around Ireland during this special week in May. All in all, it was a huge success with over 50 events organised across the country and Comtrade Digital Services was honored to be a part of it.
