From high-profile consortiums to dozens of proof of concepts, this year and last has seen a great deal of activity for enterprise blockchain.  However, few of these enterprise blockchain projects have been successful from Libra to MakerDAO. Companies have not been able to capitalize on the potential that this new technology offers. Successfully deploying blockchain requires a shift in mindset: blockchain systems must be designed as the economic systems that they are, with the economic fundamentals of the system just as important as the technology. The program will focus on the drivers by which blockchain creates economic value and how businesses can develop successful blockchains projects.   The speakers will discuss the factors in the ecosystem that shape the incentives for stakeholders and how to implement these factors in the legal framework for the enterprise blockchain. Finally, the speakers will discuss how economic design helps blockchain ecosystems to achieve the network effects that fuel long-term monetization.
