On 13 June 2019, ECN together with the University of Applied Sciences for Engineering and Economics (HTW) and Sirius Minds will host the 4th ECN CrowdCamp “Exploring Blockchain for Alternative Finance”.
This time, we aim at reflecting emerging and established trends around blockchain for the crowdfunding sector and identifying opportunities and challenges of implementing blockchain technologies. The event is being developed jointly with the ECN Exploring Blockchain for Alternative Finance multi-stakeholder working group, established with the aim of reflecting emerging and established trends around blockchain for the crowdfunding sector and identifying opportunities and challenges of implementing blockchain technologies.
Blockchain promises to offer the potential to achieve considerable cost savings, efficiencies and resilience. We embrace these developments as a key innovation potential for the European crowdfunding and alternative finance industry.
Main questions to be addressed during the 4th ECN CrowdCamp:
- What is the status quo of the blockchain technologies and what is the outlook, including solving current issues like scalability, security and privacy?
- What can investors, start-ups and SMEs active in the field of alternative finance learn from current blockchain-based use cases?
- How can the EU and its member states enable start-ups and SMEs to profit from blockchain technology and support further use cases in the field of alternative finance?
- What can the EU and its member states do to build the foundation for being the main blockchain hub in the world?
