Impressions from IBFR 2020

The third Blockchain Forum was successfully held on the Zug-Rotkreuz campus on 19th February 2020. Exciting speakers talked about their applications of blockchain for clean energy.

The first of various exciting items of the conference was the Round Table discussion of the Embassies, followed by presentations of cutting-edge research results in the Academic Track. Before heading to lunch, participants had the opportunity to discuss eight specialist topics in the BarCamp. After lunch, a number of start-ups introduced themselves and reported on their projects. The official part concluded with two use cases and the DLT-for-power initiative. At the subsequent drinks reception, participants had another chance to exchange impressions.
