The Innovation Project

  • Harvard University Campus, Cambridge

Payments and commerce have a long and storied history – one that’s as long and as rich as mankind itself. From seashells to bitcoin, the Emporium to Amazon, the merchant banks of Babylonia to the digital banks of today, the way we pay, who we pay and how we pay has evolved to reflect the needs of business and society throughout the millennia.

We’ve witnessed, over the last decade, a huge shift in the direction of payments, commerce and retail, shifts driven by the birth of the iPhone, apps, new technologies and inspired by the imaginations of innovators and incumbents alike eager to reimagine the future of how people and businesses exchange value.

In 2012, PYMNTs.com launched The Innovation Project – an annual confab of those innovators from across the ecosystem and around the world – to discuss the impact of these shifts, and debate their relevance to the future of payments and commerce. This year, this highly unique and high-powered forum will share their insights on where they’re placing their bets as they look ahead to the next decade.

Johnston, a practitioner regularly recognized and recommended as a leader in the area of technology law.

This is the second in a 5-part primer on the business of blockchain, use cases, and implementation. We will continue to look at the potential impact of blockchain technology across industries and take our audience through the first phase of a blockchain project: identifying a use case that brings value to the business and making a plan for scoping the required technology.

We know how hard it is to get your blockchain proof of concept (POC) off the ground so we've created a forum of blockchain professional resources to walk you through the chain and see if there is a POC we can help you test out in the market.

Our aim is to connect emerging entrepreneurs on campus with blockchain focused startups and resources unlocking the latent potential of cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, public, private and permissioned blockchains.
