When it comes to blockchain and cryptocurrency, heavy hitters like IBM, Microsoft, and Amazon are on the front lines with significant investments
in new data management and security solutions. But a big part of the excitement is that with the right knowledge and resources, anyone can start experimenting with blockchain right now.
That was one of the biggest lessons Infinitive’s blockchain experts Bruce Semisch and Austin Erickson took away from Consensus 2019, the headline event of Blockchain Week NYC.
Consensus is the largest annual gathering in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world, where industry leaders present the latest and greatest solutions to today’s business challenges.
Infinitive’s CEO Denis McFarlane spoke with Bruce and Austin about their time at Consensus and what people need to know to get their blockchain initiatives off the ground.
Among the key take aways:
- More companies are moving away from privately managing data and into public blockchain solutions.
- With innovations such as Amazon Blockchain Management and “blockchain in a box” tools, it’s easier than ever to develop homegrown blockchain initiatives.
- Figuring out how to organize around new blockchain solutions – and how to work with stakeholders to implement governance processes – is crucial.
