The Distributed: Trade conference is the place where one can find leading blockchain technology-based service providers along with major enterprises and financial institutions in a single setting. The participating companies and institutions will be discussing ways to use the new, versatile distributed ledger technology and how it can disrupt the industry by optimizing the way existing trade networks and settlement systems work.
The use of blockchain technology in trade and financial services is the hot thing in the recent days. Now we have the first ever global conference focusing on these core areas, scheduled next month. âDistributed: Tradeâ, as the conference isÂ called, will be held at the Washington University in St. Louis.
The Hackathon, scheduled on 12 and 13 of June will involve students, developers and aspiring entrepreneurs putting in their effort to build blockchain based technology solutions to power the future trade networks. They will be using available SDKs, APIs and other tools provided by different participating companies to create products and solutions that can be implemented into trade platforms, financial systems, and supply chains. Winners of the Hackathon will walk away with $20000 worth of bitcoin preloaded on a KeepKey Bitcoin hardware wallet while the runners-up receive KeepKey wallets loaded with $2500 in bitcoin. Also to be won is the Thomson Reuters Challenge Prize of $2500.
