Chamber of Digital Commerce to host Smart Contracts Symposium in December

Smart Contracts Symposium by Chamber of Digital Commerce

The Smart Contracts Alliance, an initiative by the Chamber of Digital Commerce, is hosting the world’s first event dedicated to smart contracts – “Smart Contracts Symposium” – on December 5, 2016 in New York.

Nick Szabo, Founder & CEO of Global Financial Access, a renowned cryptographer who coined the term “smart contracts” will be keynoting the symposium. 

“The Chamber of Digital Commerce is spearheading an important initiative to help educate the business and policy community about the unique opportunities and challenges of smart contracts technologies,” said Szabo. 

The Chamber expects to host over 250 executives from financial institutions and firms exploring this technology at Microsoft’s Times Square Headquarters. All Chamber Members are provided free admission to attend.

“Attendees will have unprecedented insight into the past, present and future of smart contracts technology,” said Perianne Boring, Founder & President of the Chamber of Digital Commerce. 

The Chamber of Digital Commerce, a leading trade association dedicated to promoting the understanding, acceptance and use of digital assets and blockchain technology, in July launched the Smart Contracts Alliance (SCA), an industry initiative of leaders in the smart contracts ecosystem to promote the real-world application of this vital technology.

Co-Chaired by Mark Smith, CEO of Symbiont, and Sean Murphy, Partner at Norton Rose Fulbright, the Smart Contracts Alliance is comprised of thought leaders and innovators from the technology, legal, and financial services industries. 

Participants of the SCA include Bloq, Cognizant, ConsenSys, Deloitte, The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, Monax (formerly Eris Industries), Georgetown University’s Center for Financial Markets and Policy, Gem, IBM, Microsoft, MIT Internet Trust Consortium, Norton Rose Fulbright, Perkins Coie, Pillsbury Law, String Labs, Symbiont, Tether, t0.com, Wipfli and others.
