21st March

1800 to 2100

Venue: Ashurst, Broadwalk House, 5 Appold Street, London EC2A 2AG

The rapid increase in the number of platforms built on Ethereum during 2017 has started to raise questions on the limitations of using a single protocol. Hence the rise of inter-ledger and multi-ledger systems.

This event has been designed to bring to life three of these new systems by their creators, and to help us understand the practical differences for those building and operating blockchain platforms which is also of interest for crypto investors. Are these the next generation platforms blockchain-based businesses ought to be building on?

Quant Network (Overledger), Wanchain, and Cardano will each be joining us to present their technologies and engage in a moderated and then open-room Q&A. This will be an informative and engaging event for techies and investors alike.

Please note that registration through Eventbrite is required so we can manage demand for this event.
