ZirconTech Fordham University - Blockchain - Block Talk Summit 2020

Block Talk Summit 2020 – Fordham University, New York.

New York, January 20th, 2020

Although nearly two decades were required to develop “digital ledger technology” (aka blockchain technology), it has only taken five years to lay the foundation of a promising future relating to such technology – a foundation that is reshaping the entire way the service industry is being thought of.  As blockchain technology continues to develop and as applications utilizing such technology become more widely used, understanding and incorporating digital transformation must be a top priority for companies and governments in order to remain competitive in the global economy.

ZirconTech was present at the Block Talk Summit 2020, which took place in New York on January 18th, and showed how blockchain technology is already having real world impacts and inaugurating a new era in technology. For example, New Power Foundation Ltd., one of the hosts of the Summit, is an energy blockchain startup project supported by Chinese government which is developing a public blockchain platform that allows worldwide investors to invest in green energy projects in various countries through purchasing tokens. But that’s not all. Other companies from diverse sectors – financial services, law, medicine, among others – are also incorporating blockchain technology into their businesses.

Chinese government has released the digital currency for RMB (yuan or renminbi), and Facebook’s Libra is on the corner. How does blockchain’s future look like in China and US. The Block Talk Summit 2020 conference in New York City aimed to answer this.

Hosted by New Power Chain at the Fordham University, McNally Amphitheater, the 2020 Block Talk Summit brought together the elite of the blockchain industry from US and China including top chain projects, exchange platforms, advisory firms, and law firms to discuss and share their valuable insights on challenges and solutions with blockchain application in various industries. This event included keynote speeches, panel discussion, and industry talk.

During a panel discussion at the Summit, the speakers exchanged views concerning how blockchain technology is already transforming the Chinese economy and the financial services sector, which has already significantly changed the world in a very short period of time.

New laws – state, federal and international – which promote the use and development of blockchain technology have not yet been fully developed or coordinated.  This technology requires new technological infrastructures and payment instruments – both which are evolving rapidly. ZirconTech stands ready and is well-positioned to support the development of such infrastructures and instruments, and to help write a new chapter of digital transformation concerning blockchain and related technologies. ZirconTech is building the present and will be ready to help build the future.

Featured Topics at the Summit:

The blockchain application on energy industry. Chinese government has made an official announcement to promote the blockchain application in different industry, and the energy blockchain is one of them. A leading energy blockchain project powered by Chinese government, and energy industrial experts from US discussed how the blockchain revolution in energy gonna impact the world.

Legal and compliance in cryptocurrency market. A lot of countries have set up the law to enforce the license of running the digital currency exchange. Some big exchange like Binance is on the fire. Key opinion leaders from blockchain law firms discussed the difference between US and China about the regulation policy on crypto trading.

Decentralized Finance(DeFi). Chinese government has released the digital currency. Facebook is promoting the Libra. JP Morgan has their own coin. Those are all DeFi projects. One of the feature topics of this conference covered the DeFi and its influence on the financial markets.

ZirconTech posicionado en el primer mapa sobre el ecosistema blockchain en Latinoamérica

ZirconTech posicionado como empresa de consultoría, software y servicios empresariales en el primer mapa sobre el ecosistema blockchain en Latinoamérica.

A fines de octubre de 2019 se presentó el primer mapa sobre el ecosistema blockchain de Latinoamérica el cual ha permitido tener un diagnóstico sobre el escenario de utilización de la tecnología a nivel regional. Este trabajo fue realizado por la Alianza Blockchain Iberoamérica, Blockchain Summit Latam y la ONG Bitcoin Argentina, con el apoyo de América Economía.

Se realizó una encuesta y el mapa con el interés de dar a conocer y apoyar el desarrollo de startups en la región y agrupar partners que agregan valor, fundamental para un trabajo colaborativo.

ZirconTech comenzó sus operaciones en 2016 y en este mapa de Latinoamérica se ha posicionado como una de las empresas consultoría, software y servicios empresariales. En estos años ha ampliado su presencia en América Latina con nuevos proyectos en Argentina, Chile, Colombia y Uruguay, y ha fortalecido las actividades en América del Norte, con énfasis en las comunidades tecnológicas de Los Ángeles, Nueva York y San Francisco.

Dentro de las conclusiones del relevamiento se observó que debe diversificarse la matriz y correr más riesgos. Es necesaria más vinculación con representantes latinos en el mundo, y atraer su experiencia, y se ha sugerido la necesidad de atraer aceleradoras y fondos de capital de riesgo a la industria.
