2020 has rewritten the rules to almost everything, and there’s nothing like disruption to drive change and even innovation. From short-term responses to crises, like PPE shortages or raging wildfires and hurricanes, to longer term planning for increased accountability and transparency in managing supply chains and addressing climate change, new and increasingly urgent use cases have emerged for blockchain in the past nine months. And more complexity and change is on the horizon as the world tries to refind its footing, navigating vaccine development and distribution, economic recovery and continued climate challenges. This panel will look at some of the ways blockchain is already at work addressing the challenges of 2020 as well as at the work that lies ahead.
