Summary : Abstract: There has been a lot of talks on blockchain being the holy grail providing a trusted ledger from tracking fine art to trade settlement. Even most of the technologists and commentators do not realize the trust does not apply to the data itself. Blockchain will merely provide an immutable recording of what has been input, it does not give your extra confidence in whether the record is correct in the first place. In this panel discussion, we will explore the readiness of the technology and extra security measures one has to deploy for mission critical implementations.
