Session description: The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted virtually all businesses, but the effect has not been uniform (watch our webcast on the impact of COVID-19 on the European technology market). While the current disruption may present challenges to the blockchain industry in the short term, it will also unlock new opportunities in the mid and longer-term. By providing help in the COVID-19 crisis and recovery, blockchain can play a pivotal role in accelerating post-crisis digital transformation initiatives and solving those problems highlighted in the current system.
