The Future of Digital Identity with Blockchain & Verifiable Credentials

November 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm



About this event

Location: McMaster Innovation Park 175 Longwood Road South Conference Room 1ABC – Main Floor Hamilton, ON L8P 0A1

Receive a FREE digital token for participating in the session from our speaker!!!

The average consumer has dozens of different identities, one for every service that they interact with. We use a variety of digital tokens like NFTs to access events but it’s not yet safe to use them. The present systems for getting involved with these new technologies can be complicated. Join Rylan Hartley, CEO of Grapl, to delve into the world of blockchain and NFTS (non-fungible tokens) and get a better sense of how these types of assets can affect your business or just to become well-versed on the topic in general!

In this session we will discuss:

  • What it means to have a human identity in an evolving digital world
  • How digital ownership is changing the way we do business
  • How brands and consumers can use technology to improve the way we interact with one another

This session will be especially helpful for business owners that are currently thinking about Web3 integrations and are looking for new ways to engage with consumers.
