Community Innovation Lecture Series: Monetization in Blockchain Business Networks

July 14 7:00 AM-8:00 AM PDT

As excitement grows around new monetization opportunities for data and services in business networks, we are pleased to present an expert panel for discussion on the topic.  This panel will explore opportunities to monetize data and services within consortium networks. Expect to hear differing perspectives from our expert panel as they come from different industries and will have different views on the role of data, shared services, governance and tokens. Expect to leave the event with a clearer picture of the possible ledger based business models for mobility, permissioned data, the “trusted trip”, and how the core network services of governance, authority, identity, and assurance (GAIA) can accelerate monetization.
