On Tuesday 13th November 2018, the ESSEC Asia-Pacific Campus hosted a round-table session that showcased “The Unexpected Uses of Blockchain”.
Blockchain’s transparency, reliability and decentralized nature make it the obvious choice for securing intellectual or virtual assets. However, blockchain's uses extend far beyond the aspect of security and cryptocurrency, and there is now a focus to see how blockchain can build practical business applications, even for industries that are usually not associated with this technology – such as Education, Agriculture and Human Resources!
Those were the issues tackled during the latest ESSEC Asia-Pacific round-table. Close to 50 attendants (alumni, students, staff and the general public) enjoyed the speakers’ inputs, then prolonged the discussion in a networking session thereafter.
