At BlockWorld, we believe that blockchain, smart contracts, and decentralized apps are just the beginning of a larger move towards developing a decentralized cloud. Instead of one company or one cloud managing / owning your data, identity, or app, blockchain makes it possible for decentralized data, decentralized ownership, decentralized identity, decentralized infrastructure and software. This is a paradigm shift away from the monolithic cloud towards the decentralized cloud. Come and learn how to develop on the decentralized cloud.
Prabath Siriwardena, vice president of security architecture at WSO2, will be delivering a talk on "Blockchain for Self-sovereign Identity" exploring the evolution of identity management in the era of blockchain.
