Blockchain Technology Symposium 2021

Blockchain Technology Symposium 2021 (BTS’ 21), is a forum where academic researchers, industry professionals, and decision makers come together to present recent advancements, discuss adoption barriers, tackle common challenges, and explore future roadmaps surrounding blockchain and its related technologies such as consensus algorithms, smart contracts, cryptocurrencies, and distributed ledger technologies.

As a follow-up to BTS’18 & BTS ‘20, which were hosted by Ryerson University and The Fields Institute, and by popular demand, BTS 2021 will gather a diverse audience from academia, industry and policy makers to engage in a dialogue around crucial topics in the adoption of blockchain technology. The aim is to bring these communities closer to address the challenges and seize the opportunities brought forward by this promising technology.

BTS ’21 will feature multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral talks and presentations on the themes: (1) decentralized finance (DeFi), (2) decentralized identity, (3) decentralized health and (4) decentralized supply chain management.
