Details

Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) is becoming more than a buzzword as major tech companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Oracle, and IBM, as well as lesser known companies like Stratis and Jelurida, continue to build out their platforms - but a lack of standard terminology makes it difficult to compare what value these companies are offering to other businesses.

Furthermore, there still aren't many mainstream use cases to help people understand this technology in real terms. Meanwhile, industry reports say BaaS could grow to be a $30+ billion industry by 2024.

Join Skylar Hurwitz, trusted blockchain educator and contributor on the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) DLT Standardization Focus Group, for an engaging 30-minute introduction to "BaaS" platforms, their existing use cases, and ongoing challenges for mainstream adoption.
