18:15u Why bother about blockchain? - Henk van Cann
What is it, how it is used best and why anyone should get into blockchain technology. Henk will give his insights on how the blockchain works and what it can do for you. He will examine and explain the blockchains that dominate much of the crossover space from crypto-currency, e-identity to blockchain technology:
Bitcoin, Ethereum, NXT and Hyperledger.
He will also show how to judge what is true and false in the increasingly hyped news and opinions about the benefits of blockchain.
In addition, Van Cann will give examples of how this technology is going to change your work and life. It is an interactive session.

19:30u What you can learn from Blockchains in Work management systems like OpenLucius - Joris Snoek
Aimed at small & medium sized organisations OpenLucius connects to Bitcoin, Ethereum, NXT and Hyperledger. Joris (@joris_lucius) wil address the three main problems blockchain can solve that could not be solved before for users of OpenLucius. These principles are general tough, every visitor could apply them on his/hers own situation in (working) life.
Briefly Snoek demonstrates the functions that aim to solve these problems within OpenLucius. A discussion about where to take OpenLucius from here could follow and Joris is open to that.
