    Title of presentation: 

    The universal wallet - A digital swiss army knife: The case of Paiblock  

    Abstract of presentation: 

    The emerging paradigm of digitization has fallen short of its promises. An IDC report shows that 70% of all digital transformation projects have failed and did not reach their goals. Of the $1.3 trillion that was spent on digital transformation in 2018, it was estimated that more than $900 billion went to waste. What went wrong? Can blockchain and DLT emerge as a universal enabler for digital transformation? These and others are the questions this presentation will attempt to answer, while also delving into how Paiblock has leveraged blockchain to develop a universal wallet that cuts across several verticals.

      Modern societies complicated connections beg for decentral business models to deliver services fulfilling these needs. Blockchain based solutions are used for opening for other venues than classical individual bottom line oriented models. We will show different approaches through goods theory and how these can be applied to business areas not normally addressed – and a little on why this is not just network economy. We will show a practical example of a universal wallet that is considered both as access gateway to intelligent devices multiplying globally. The societal effect of these wallets being proactive and intelligent is expected to be enormous even if unforeseeable.
