Security And Systemic Risk are Top Highlights of the 2019 Stanford Blockchain Conference

The 2019 Stanford blockchain Conference is set to happen from January 30 to February 1 and the convention is reuniting experts to talk about the future of the industry. Security and the “systemic risks” of cryptos will be the main subject this year.

This event will last for three days and it is set to continue the tradition of Stanford to be interested in the blockchain technology. There will be many panels on the day and they will focus on a wide range of issues, but the main focus will be the theme of the event: security and risk.

According to the press release, the event will be led by Stanford professors but it will also have contributions from people involved in the blockchain business. Companies that will bring representatives will be many. Some of them are ConsenSys, Blockstream and Polychain Capital.

Other important company that will bring in representatives is Interstellar, which is a Stellar-focused startup company and Chainspace, a company that created a new smart contracts platform.

This Will Be the Third Conference

The 2019 Stanford Blockchain Conference is far from being a new initiative. The first episode came out in 2017 when the blockchain technology was only starting to blossom. Since then, the second edition was made this year and now the third one is set to happen in 2019.

According to the information we got, the goal of the conference is to explore formal methods and use empirical analysis to understand the systemic risks that involve the blockchain technology and discover how to diminish these risks and to deal with them.

“Multidisciplinary collaboration” was also described as one of the main themes of the 2019 version of the blockchain event. The press release states that the event aims to create a collaboration between many areas of expertise in order to research the blockchain technology, its distributed systems and risk management for companies.

Because of this, you can expect experts from many areas to converge during the conference to offer explanations on how the market can be made better and less prone to cyclical crisis and bubbles, like the one that has caused the 2018 crypto market crash.

Stanford And The Blockchain Technology

One would be wrong to assume that Stanford’s relationship with the blockchain could be summarised as this event. The university has created blockchain courses last year and has also decided to open a dedicated blockchain research center.

Also, there are rumors that Stanford has invested in crypto funds from the United States, though these rumors are unconfirmed.
