A technology that organizes data security in swarms: The blockchain claims to solve nothing less than the confidence problem of the entire human race. Either by bank transferrals, contracts or technical parameters – the inseparably linked data blocks should prevent any manipulation by third parties. Because trustworthy instances and middlemen are no longer needed, machines can conclude binding contracts, too. So is the blockchain the reinvention of the Internet – and the future basis of the economy and society? With the decentralized regulatory corset, the water or energy supply should be just as comprehensively organized as the pension and health system. Those great visions must prove their potential in test applications first. From transparent production and supply chains to autonomous mobility services: The conference Blockchain Business Models does not focus on the technology hype, but on resilient business models. The progress in efficiency will be discussed in detailed showcases, but problems of the blockchain will be analyzed in these applications, too.
