As the medium of money, exchange and assets rarely changes, the emergence of cryptoassets and the continued development of blockchain technology are too important to ignore. We’ve asked two leading technology experts to assess the business implications as the nature of corporations and competitiveness itself is set to change forever.

One of the world’s leading authorities on the impact of technology on business and society, Don Tapscott talks about the transformative effect of blockchain technology on businesses, and how it will lead to decentralisation, collaboration and wholesale changes for all business types.

Adam Ludwin, CEO of leading technology company Chain, shares his insight on the trillion-dollar asset class that’s fast becoming more than just an investment opportunity, suggesting business leaders should take note; ignoring it at their peril.
