Beyond Blocks Seoul Summit 2018

Beyond Blocks Seoul Summit is a very energetic Blockchain event. Here is a wrap of my live tweets couple of weeks ago.

South Korea is known for 3 things, Kimchi, K-Pop and Crypto-currency.

Follow the footsteps of – Integrate with eCommerce platform, Offer discount to grow adoption, Add credit, landing layer on top, Transform to FinTech.

Tink Labs from Hong Kong introduced their new platform – Passport, by spending 90% of the time talked about Handy … but one thing is true – travellers have no problem in “currency conversion”.

Michael Novogratz of Galaxy Digital Capital Management : Crypto industry is moving / growing fast in Asian countries, because … Asians love gaming / gambling, matter-of-factly.

Use Hybrid blockchains with layered architecture, sharding and rPoS to scale the system.

How can we tell an ICO is a success ? The product, the users / community, the team, the ecosystem … but not the cool whitepaper and price of the token.

Blockchain or not, Payment system or not, any new system needs to deliver good UX and features that the users don’t need to trade off any utility.

“Are you ready to disrupt the others, with Blockchain ?”, Jason Han, CEO, Ground X (Kakao)

Finally, a talk about Enterprise-level Blockchain platform, by Jason Han, which is exactly what we are doing for the past 12 months. Great stuff

Another down-to-earth talk, by Jon Choi, about Blockchain ecosystem – Blockchain is not all about Exchange, Protocol and ICO; but a lot of non-tech things to do as well.

A jump from theory to technical focus talk, JH Kim of ICON explains how they solve the BFT problem.

It’s not only about delivering a technical sound solution, but also how to compete with end users’ laziness.

Media, layman, “outsiders” always link hacks / insecurity to Blockchain and they don’t care about technical details.
