He currently holds patents in artificial intelligence, information security, privacy, and financial services and has patents pending in blockchain, supply chain integrity, medication adherence, and non-lethal weapons.
He has been effective developing "out-of-the-box" solutions by using novel technology from one discipline to cross-fertilize another. In this way, he has developed novel solutions that were invisible to the same way of looking at problems.
In addition to his technical expertise, Mr. Stollman has managed both businesses and programs valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars with full P&L responsibility.
In work over the last three years, Mr. Stollman has been deeply involved in developing blockchain-based solutions and currently has four blockchain patents pending in areas that include supply-chain integrity and platforms for monetizing intellectual property and helping innovators fund bringing their products to market.
Mr. Stollman holds a Master’s degree from Tufts University and has supported prestigious clients including IBM, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, US Bank, Merrill Lynch, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Ford, and a wide array of federal agencies, including the DoD and Intelligence communities. He is deeply involved in global standards organizations, having served as chairman of the Privacy and Public Policy working group of the Kantara Initiative. He currently serves as a technical expert to the International Telecommunications Union – Technology (ITU-T) organization and supports the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL).
Mr. Stollman has presented at such conferences as Global Indexing and ETFs, the European Identity and Cloud Conference, the RSA security conference, the Healthcare Distributors Association Traceability Seminar, the Internet Identity Workshop, and the Computer Security Institute. He has also appeared as an expert witness on behalf of the US EPA in public hearings on the economic impact of proposed noise abatement regulations, and has testified at numerous hearings on protests of federal procurements.
In this virtual event, Matthew Zand will briefly review the Hyperledger family (DLTs, libraries and tools) and its ecosystem. Then will review key components and architecture of Hyperledger Fabric, followed by reviewing the latest features of Hyperledger Fabric V2. And lastly, he'll discuss best practices for migrating to Hyperledger Fabric V2.
Topics covered in this webinar are discussed in depth in his below book, Hands-On Smart Contract Development with Hyperledger Fabric V2: Building Enterprise Blockchain Applications (which is endorsed by many professionals including Brian Behlendorf).
Matt will also give away 5 free e-books as well as a coupon code for accessing my book for 1 month for free. Direct message Matt on Linkedin for details.
There event will be 45 minutes for presentation, followed by 15 minutes for Q/A

This session will cover the features of the Oracle Blockchain Platform (OBP) based on Hyperledger Fabric including the enhancements Oracle has made to Fabric.
OBP is a managed Blockchain as a Service offering from Oracle that makes is extremely easy to set up, configure, and manage a Fabric network.
As a fully managed service Oracle takes care of patching, upgrading, ensuring availability, etc. leaving the user to focus on blockchain and not what it takes to get a production ready blockchain network up and running.
As well as a development tool called App Builder, it allows developers to quickly create, debug, and deploy smart contracts based upon a specification file that defines the smart contracts assets, including support for tokens. It’s a bit like the deprecated Composer project and includes both a CLI and VScode extension.
