By October 6, 2017 Blog

We’re traveling to Toronto in a few weeks to attend Sibos 2017, Oct 16-19. Under the conference theme of ‘Building for the Future,’ we have a robust program agenda planned that is designed to help attendees learn about permissioned blockchains, distributed ledger technologies and smart contracts, plus the latest innovations coming out of Hyperledger.

There will be a mix of Hyperledger sessions moderated by Executive Director, Brian Behlendorf and others on the team as well as our members that touch on everything from business standards, to security implications, to specific use cases of blockchain.

A brief synopsis of the schedule of activities is below. We hope to see you there!
