Blockchain and Transatlantic Security: Challenges and Opportunities of Blockchain Beyond Bitcoin

Panel Discussion / Free admission / Please register

While Bitcoin is currently in a downward spiral, the technology behind it – distributed ledger technology, commonly referred to as blockchain – might prove of critical importance when it comes to the military and economic security of the transatlantic world. Blockchain in the context of national security operates on issues such as questions of border security, national integrity, energy security, cyber security, or counterterrorism. As e.g. Foreign Policy Magazine stated in 2018, blockchain technology can be of vital importance in strengthening national and international security strategies and infrastructures in these contexts, in particular since countries such as China and Russia are heavily investing in the technology. Accordingly, the magazine demands a stronger engagement with the blockchain in connection with security in and for the transatlantic world.


In this panel discussion we will bring together various experts on the blockchain technology and discuss the current and future challenges for security policies in the Western world.
