Event description
Blockchain technology and GDPR may seem at odds with one another at first glance - how can we ensure a cohesive working relationship?

About this Event

GDPR compliance is an often neglected part of blockchain applications. GDPR needs to be considered by design. This is especially true in distributed ledger technology, where problems in an immutable system are difficult or impossible to fix after the system goes live. GDPR compliance for blockchains still faces a lot of legal uncertainty. Projects like DIN SPEC 4997 - Privacy by Blockchain Design - as well as this conference, aim to improve clarity and to establish best practices.

This conference is a unique opportunity for those in the blockchain space to be part of an in-depth discussion between legal and technical experts. After a day of intense discussions with more than a dozen presentations have addressed specific aspects like “blockchains and the transfer to third countries”, “the household exemptions for privately motivated transactions on public blockchains”, “the nature of hashes in regards to personal data” we will summarise the results in an easily digestible format and give the community a forum to network and discuss the issue with experts in a relaxed atmosphere.
