Blockchain and related technologies have spurred on the development of the FinTech industry for over a decade. Blockchain has the potential to fundamentally transform industries outside of finance through how interactions are conducted, agreements are recorded and contracts are implemented. The shipping industry is poised for change through the impact that these developments will bring to business processes along the supply chains that run through ports.

This session will keep you abreast of current developments in blockchain technologies and applications. Join Dr Tan Chong Hui and Associate Professor Ding Ding as they share the basic concepts of understanding how blockchains work, the state of blockchain developments and use cases in the region, and how it will impact the shipping and supply chain industry.

Free Admission
