WORKSHOP
Blockchain Technology: an asset for financial services

Time: 08:30 - 11:30
Location: BTO, Thormølensgt 51

Finance Innovation has the pleasure of inviting members of the cluster to a workshop hosted by our latest member, hubii.

Workshop theme
The missing link: A commercially-focused scaling solution that enables blockchain based financial applications

Who should attend?
Executives, strategists and developers in finance who want to understand how scaling will make blockchain technology a real asset for financial services - especially consumer facing services.

What to expect
The Bergen based company hubii recently launched their commercially-focused scaling solution for blockchain, called striim by hubii. 

This workshop - held by hubii, a new member of the cluster -  will explore use cases such as creating fiat backed tokens or a possible integration with the account aggregation project. 

You will see how striim not only resolves common issues around blockchain cost and speed, but will also - in the second part - be able to take a closer look at the technical implementation, including the CLI / SDK of the product.

About hubii

hubii started as an aggregator of local news working with companies like Telenor, TCL Alcatel. Panasonic and Mozilla. In 2017 hubii decided to augment the existing business with blockchain technology and make the distribution of relevant content significantly easier for all involved: creators, distributors and consumers.

As hubii started building this content focused system, they realized that none of the key tools needed to power it - especially around asset management - met the companies high standards of transparency and ease of use. So hubii included the needed base tools in their roadmap and has since deployed two key products:

striim by hubii - a commercially-focused Ethereum scaling solution and

hubii core - a crypto asset manager combining wallet, wallet manager and exchange
