A common pitfall for people interested in blockchains is how this technology is being used to solve real world problems. We keep hearing how blockchain will revolutionize Fintech, Insurance, Healthcare, Sharing Economy, Sovereignty, Identity etc. but actual use cases are hard to find.
Most common and familiar use case is crypto-price speculation which in my view is really not an app based use case.
To address this pain point, this Meetup will go through salient use cases showcasing use of blockchain tech in Fintech, insurance, health-care, data sharing (CPU, networks, storage), Identity, Decentralized Applications etc. and also look at notable, innovative startups in each space. I will also cover interesting development tools available for coders to build blockchain applications. You may be surprised to know that there are many blockchain based platforms available (other than Ethereum) to build completely decentralized and unstoppable applications.
Use cases across industry segments are helpful in understanding the big picture and mapping some of the things being done elsewhere to your specific industry or firm.
I have looked at many white papers and startup offerings to compile this presentation - hoping to have a good ideas exchange.
