Blockchain

About

We’ve seen how powerful blockchain technology can be, but how disruptive can it really become? Fundamental technological and market-related challenges still stand in the way of potentially world-changing applications. Now that the mania of 2017 and early 2018 has worn off, which projects and ideas have staying power? The race is on to define the new blockchain era.

This event will be hosted by McCarter & English at Four Gateway Center in Newark.

Richie Etwaru

Founder and CEO, Hu‑manity.co

Richie Etwaru is the founder and CEO of Hu‑manity.co. The company’s mission is to create a 31st human right for the digital age: that humans have a right to their own data as a form of property. This 31st right, moving beyond the 30 instituted by the Geneva Convention in 1948, will bestow the legal characteristics of property ownership to inherent human data, such as involvement in sale, fair market value negotiations, sharing, lien, security, and protection from theft, vandalism or squatting. And blockchain will play a key role in securing this right. Hu‑manity.co has developed proprietary technology that identifies existing legal corridors in privacy regulations and has designed new intelligent contracts on blockchains which humans can use to negotiate new terms of consent and authorization with corporations so that inherent human data can be respected as legal property. Hu‑manity.co’s global inherent Human Data Consent and Authorization Blockchain (HD-CAB) is built on a “chain of chains” strategy combining Ethereum and other fabrics. Hu‑manity's official app, #My31, which will allow people to claim their 31st right, is now available. In his speeches, Mr. Etwaru argues why blockchain and the digital currencies that use it will disrupt commerce in the coming years. He explores how blockchain has the potential to close the expanding trust gap in commerce by reducing intermediaries in transactions, decreasing the need for customer verification, and cutting down on fraud. He makes the case for why consumers will naturally trust companies utilizing these technologies, and why companies across the board need to adopt blockchain or risk being disrupted by more trusted, blockchain versions of themselves. Mr. Etwaru also discusses his work for Hu‑manity.co, and why the 31st right they are advocating recognizes the individual’s role in the digital age and the data economy. Richie Etwaru was formerly IQVIA’s chief digital officer, where he was responsible for identifying, prioritizing and embedding technology innovation and digital trends into the vision, strategy, and operating model of their Global Technology Solutions business unit. He is also the author of Blockchain: Trust Companies: Every Company Is at Risk of Being Disrupted by a Trusted Version of Itself. Richie Etwaru has delivered over 100 blockchain keynotes across the world and has advised governments and venture funds on blockchain opportunities.
