The Blockchain Identity: Campbell R. Harvey
Friday November 3, 2017
10:30 am – 11:45 am
Location TBA

Blockchain is an emerging and highly disruptive technology that is poorly understood. First, I explain the mechanics of public and private blockchains. I then focus on applications which include: the Internet of Things, machine to machine payments, identity protection, secure political voting, clearing of financial transactions, property transfers, Fedcoin, dispensing prescription drugs, private records, intellectual property, financial reporting, media and advertising, supply chain, barter 2.0, share economy, digital twins and, yes, even smart guns.

Panel Speaker:

Campbell (Cam) R. Harvey is Professor of Finance and ​J. Paul Sticht Professor of International Business at Duke University and a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER).
