Round Table “Identity Management for Individuals, Companies, and Machines” on September 16, 2020

What is the content of this round table?

The goal of this round table is to foster the exchange of knowledge between a small group of max. 15 blockchain experts and decision-makers from industrial companies in order to explore blockchain-based identity management for individuals, companies, and machines. The Euro on blockchain systems is only one side of the coin because transactions take place between multiple parties. Of course, these are normally individuals and companies but such parties will soon also be “things” such as devices or machines. Identity on the blockchain has far-reaching implications and ensures that transaction parties receive a “digital identity” on the blockchain-based on their physical identity (identity card for individuals, commercial register entry for companies). Based on a digital blockchain-based identity, transactions between an individual and a company (example: car sharing) but also between an individual and a machine (example: passenger transport of an autonomous car) or between two machines (example: autonomous car pays for waiting on a parking lot) can be processed efficiently — i.e. with fast transaction speed and low transaction costs.
