Description

Blockchain is one of the 21st centuries most impactful inventions. In addition to creating and facilitating crypto-tokens such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Stellar, Ripple, etc. this technology is impacting several industries. Blockchain technology is playing an important role in decentralizing transaction based systems that were otherwise traditionally managed centrally. In addition to decentralizing transaction networks, Blockchain has been at the center of developments in the field of smart contracts, information systems such as logistic management systems, payroll management systems, human resource management systems, medical information systems and other fin-tech infrastructure. We propose this panel to engage the Information Systems Community about the current and future research trends in Blockchain based information systems.
