Over the past year the meaning of a “Blockchain” has changed as many chains become focused on solving a business problem and crypto currencies outside of the top few struggle to get adoption.

Does a “Blockchain” application have to all be from a single entity like Ethereum, or will each applied application be composed of parts emerging from many software companies and Open Source projects? James will discuss the idea of what a “Blockchain” will mean in 2020 and beyond.
