The role of open source software in blockchain
Blockchain technology is set to revolutionise digital transactions in the same way that the internet democratised the sharing of digital information. New blockchain companies, consortia and collaborations are announced every day – particularly within the finance industry.

And what can we expect from this technology for the future? This panel will explore the role that open source software plays in the rapid development of blockchain today and the standards needed for tomorrow.
