E) Mechanism Framework (Trust, Incentive, Blue Ocean, Self-Organizing and AI)

Workshop and Groups Sessions

Day -2: Designing Blockchain Solutions

Participants will be exposed to the different blockchain designs and paradigms; public permission-less and private permission-less blockchains and how to select the right design and architectures.

We will cover design and development processes and patterns, deployment models and support.

A) Design for Public/Permission-less Blockchain: (Smart Contracts, Token Mechanisms & Classifications; API Economy, State Machine, Sovereign Identity and Monetization)

Case Studies & Best Practices.

B) Design for Private/Permission-less Blockchain: Requirements (Why private - permission less); Business Case / Business Models; Application & System Architecture and Design; Deployment models: Cloud (AWS, Azure, Digital Ocean); On premise; and Governance.
