Blockchain is a technology discussion, but it is not only a technology discussion. The transformative nature of peer-to-peer technology, smart contracts and standards means it is not just each of us competing against each other to ‘win’ in this space, it actually means our success in this area will be measured by how we work together as a global team.

In this session, Mance Harmon, CEO & Co-Founder of Hedera, will examine why tokenization has not yet fulfilled its promises, and will lay out what needs to happen for 2021 to be the year that asset tokenization finally goes mainstream.
