Internet of Agreements
First Conference

The First Internet of Agreements Conference

The first Internet of Agreements® conference took place between 13th and 16th October in London. Some of the brightest minds in finance, media, government, and technology came together to discuss the various implications blockchain technology will have for global supply chains and law. Throughout the 'unconference', two hack days, and the formal conference, attendees learned about the new possibilities that blockchain technology opens up in their respective fields.

Below, you will find videos and transcripts of the talks and interview that took place at the conference. They will serve as refreshers for those who attended the conference and as a briefing for those who did not.

The success of the IoA project requires engagement from experts in business, law, media, technology, and government to contribute; similarly, these posts will do their bit to help propagate the vision of the Internet of Agreements.
