  • Discuss the leading applications and significant policy issues confronting the blockchain ecosystem in 2020, including asset tokenisation, central bank digital currencies, and self-sovereign identity

  • Review the emerging policy responses including through the recent work of the OECD, and share best practices identified across the world

  • Look ahead to emerging trends in the blockchain industry, and hear from stakeholders on how policy can best support viable and fit-for-purpose innovation and adoption of distributed ledger technologies
