What we're about

The Blockchain technology will revolutionise the way business is handled over the Internet. We are right at the start of this process which allows anyone to innovate upon this technology and conquer a prominent spot in the Internet of the future.

To facilitate this innovation, the Blockchain Vlaanderen meetup group has been formed to bring developers, business, startups and any that don't fit in any of the former categories together to share their vision, developments and research related to this technology.

We will attempt to feature both business-oriented and developer oriented talks to have interesting content for anyone, but we will not feature any sales or product presentations. Each event will feature a time slot for networking.

To join the discussion, meet the members and submit talk or location proposals, please join our Slack organisation (https://blockchainvlaanderen.herokuapp.com/) or our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BlockchainVlaanderenBE). We are currently and actively looking for speakers for our meetups!

Meetup #12 @ T2-Campus Genk

T2-campus

We are delighted to invite you to our first 2019 meetup on February 5th! We are all welcome in the buildings of T2 Campus in Genk for what will already be our 12th Blockchain Vlaanderen meetup. This meetup will be focused on "Key challenges & difficulties when starting blockchain PoC and moving into Production Environment" Despite the fact that Blockchain is regarded by many as the future, it appears that it is difficult to get started with blockchain today. The reasons for this include the fact that the contemporary lack of regulation creates a risky environment. Alongside legislation, there are more primary challenges such as privacy, uncertainty and cost. And no, the world won’t run on the blockchain anytime soon. The fact that the technology is still too complex for many, makes it also still too difficult to appreciate the benefits of it. This time, we offer you four presentations that will try to help you to figure out how you can solve difficulties when starting blockchain PoC. The lectures will also discuss some important challenges that will be addressed when setting up a blockchain project, such as Business Architecture; Users Management; Governance; Data privacy, Regulatory & Compliance requirements, … ▼ ▼ Agenda ▼ ▼ ► 18:30 - 19:00 | Welcome ► 19:00 - 19:30 | "Why Blockchain needs Product Managers" - Gianni Brisson - www.investereum.com As is the case with many (new) technologies that are used to develop applications, the first key to a successful product launch often lies in the preparation. Many new tech products often look promising, especially through the eyes of the creators, but often sales expectations aren’t met after the launch of the product. In the past couple of years, Blockchain projects had their fair share of failed product launches. Many products didn’t even make it through the development stage, despite having raised millions of euros by means of an ICO. ► 19:30 - 20:00 | 2nd presentation ► 20:00 - 20:30 | Break ► 20:30 - 21:00 | 3rd presentation ► 21:00 21:30 | 4th presentation ► 21:30 – 22:30 | Catering offered by Accenture Hope to see you there! Space is limited so please only RSVP if you will attend
