The latest findings and advantages of a decentralized storage structure and interoperable supply chains are central to a second block of topics. Founders will outline experiences in the crypto world. Artificial intelligence also features high on the agenda with the AI Summit on June 29 which is being held in co-operation with the Initiative AI Hamburg.

Sources and further information


A blockchain is a decentralised database in which a record of transactions made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency is maintained across several computers that are linked in a peer-to-peer network.  The database is expanded chronologically in a linear fashion, comparable to a chain to which new elements are constantly added. A new block is created as soon as one is complete. Each block contains a checksum of the previous block to protect the technology from manipulation.
