The 5th Symposium on Distributed Ledger Technology


Distributed Ledger Technology is an emerging technology, which provides the way to store, transfer and manage information and digital assets in a distributed fashion. It enables the creation of decentralized crypto-currencies, smart contracts, eGovernance, supply chain management, eVoting etc over a network without any human intervention. Ability to perform transactions reliably in an untrusted environment with traceability has expanded the application domains of blockchain to financial services, stock exchange, digital identity, supply chain, health services and Internet of Things.

The goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers, entrepreneurs, business leaders and policy makers to critically analyse current systems and propose new solutions creating a scientific background for a solid development of innovative Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) applications.
