About Blockchain Technology

Blockchain technology is a universally transparent ledger where distributed trade and services can be conducted without the need for the usual trusted intermediaries of the past. The old world order of centralized services monopoly-controlling all the data and mechanisms of business are gone.  In its place will be disintermediated marketplaces and services where buyers and sellers can conduct business directly to great efficiency and transparency. The original Internet was massively disruptive to society by connecting the offline to the digital. Internet 2.0 furthered connectivity and multimodal interaction via social networks and mobile technology.

Blockchain technology represents the new Internet 3.0, where the tidal wave of market potential of new distributed business models will make the earlier disruptions looks like small ripples in a pond.  This three day event is designed to bring together the leading experts on blockchain to demonstrate the technology’s incredible potential, develop opportunities, and collaborate for a better future for investors and innovators, regulators and entrepreneurs, and finance industry leaders and the uninitiated.  In light of the One Belt, One Road Initiative from China, there will be a special focus on the new Silk Road linking 65 countries in Africa, Asia, and Europe.

The One World Blockchain Alliance connects the most innovative blockchain companies in the developed world to the vast opportunities of the developing world for the benefit of all.  As the One Belt One Road Initiative frees the flow of trade and capital the One World Blockchain Alliance is leveraging the best-in-class international blockchain technologies to help make that happen.
