10.31 (WED)

Blockchain, The Ugly Duckling

Blockchain faces criticism as much as it receives praise. Nevertheless, we must move forward. But where are we headed? We listen to those at the frontier of innovation.


Imagining the Possibilities with 5G

A hyperconnected society is approaching. A world where vast amount of data can be shared across a dense network and 5G will be the key to opening the this new world.


Blockchain Inside

Innovative technology creates cracks in stereotypes. In that gap, the philosophical anguish and the desire for a new economic structure grows. A paradigm not familiar with any stereotype may take hold.


Investment into the Future

Investing is a seed, manure and sunlight all in itself. It makes dry trees grow fruits, which then leaves seeds behind. What kind of future are we planting on the blockchain soil?
