As people will be looking at the CREBACO report as a resource to know which exchanges are high quality and safe and which are not, there is a big responsibility in this choice. To be globally relevant, the list needs to include the exchanges that have ease of access for citizens of countries a... more

"The blockchain" won't make "the supply chain more transparent for consumers" but there are blockchains that can be structured in such a way that the public can access supply chain information in a permissioned manner. The organizations building out the individual blockchain networks will have to ch... more

What do you feel the role of the Blockchain Chamber of Commerce should be when it comes to validating blockchain projects? Should only vetted individuals and organizations with working blockchains that provide a verifiable value-add the community be allowed to be members of the...
With emerging technology such as blockchain you may need to keep the door open for a while, as the most value-added projects are still yet to come. Value-add may be difficult to gauge for many early-stage projects. It may be a good idea to monitor the progress of individuals (members) on... more

Should an ecosystem that touts transparency as one of the key factors of blockchain be transparent about the speaking fees/expenses paid to keynotes as well as panelists? (At least averages that could be broken down by age, race, and gender would provide insights that could help...
Not a bad idea. But speaking fees are driven largely by celebrity/publications status more than anything else. If they don't fall into one of those two categories then compensation may need to be reconsidered. I recently chaired a conference for IEEE and we had some high profile sp... more

What are the best use cases and examples for Blockchain in Supplychain? How does it affect SupplyChain practices?
Provenance (tracking of goods) and Regulatory compliance seem to be the most important use cases related to supply chain, and these can be broken down into several sub-segments.
By documenting the provenance of goods as they move thru the supply chain, the breadth of recalls can be reduced an... more

Each of the Big Four auditors are making announcements about Blockchain these days. Are there ways in which each of their approaches differ?
Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, and Pricewaterhouse Coopers are ALL heavily invested in the integration of blockchain into enterprise level organizations. Regulatory uncertainty has been an issue for them all and most of their focus has been on POC's and not large scale implementations.&nbs... more

What does it mean to be a blockchain node operator? Are there any blockchains out there that don't have node operators?
A node operator runs software that keeps a full copy of the blockchain and broadcasts transactions across the network. Nodes are needed in order to make blockchains work.
An operator ensures that nodes run with enough resources to keep nodes stable and performant. Nodes need to have enough RAM, disk... more
