Few other points from conference (Non-hype sort)

  • The six child chains listed on the video at the start are smart cities, pharmaceutical, food, art, agriculture, and clothing.

  • A data management software for their clients to oversee their child-chains. The conference put high emphasises on security of any data within their child-chain; the client can choose what data to be public to other chains and what be kept secret within the company. WTC understands sensitivity of business data and the importance of discretion and security with it.

  • Plans to create a blockchain research foundation/group with focus on tech/software innovation and integration.

  • Plans to further integrate blockchain with other tech, SUCH AS (not definitely) Bluetooth v5.

  • "Human security" - No matter how secure your software code and hardware tech is, humans can still impact any tech. Proofing against people is a large part of a secure blockchain tech.

  • An interesting part is where they spoke of the blockchain/crypto market. 2017 is "spring and summer"; everything flourished. They perceive 2018 to be "autumn and winter", and predicts the majority of cryptos with no real world implications or actual real usage cases to die off. WTC aims to be one of those who succeed in 2018 with real world impact to improve a business on the fundamental supply chain and data basis.

  • They actually put some time into saying where they failed in 2017, and apologised for the communication/marketing letdowns to the international/western community. Grateful for feedback, learned from the experience, and aims to improve on this, along with any other weak points going into 2018.

  • A recurring theme throughout the conference is "trust". Trust between B2B, B2C that WTC is trying to foster, and trust between WTC and its investors/clients. WTC understands that trust is to be earned through action and proof, not just words. If they seem to be slow in delivering products, its because they want to make sure the WTC blockchain/hardware is truly trustworthy and in working order. It was also a reason for the GNM; they wanted to reward WTC investors who trusted them with their money, and trusted that they would achieve their goal.

  • They also called WTC holders "bros".

Thanks I appreciate this post. Sometimes it’s hard to find some decent details and clear information.

I decided to put in only points that other posts didn't cover, and more actual "tech/roadmap" news than partnerships.

Better translated as "a discussion".

If establishing a child-chain is equivalent of "marriage", and partnerships as "engagement", then GSK and WTC are currently on a "first date". And just like real life relationships, I'm not going to assume anything until they announce their relationship status themselves.

Excellent metaphor.

Like every first date i will hope Glaxo gives up a little pussy! The best first dates end with your RFID chip making some child chains.

great post bro this is so good i love it

level 1

Excellent post, appreciate your work!

Hey bro :D

level 1

So they revealed the secret 3rd chain to be one of those?

level 2

His first bullet point is inaccurate. We only know that 1 of the 6 chains is a smart city in korea, and another 1 of the 6 is in the agriculture industry. That's all. We don't know what the other 4 are, but we can speculate based on the industries that were mentioned in the conference. Cannot confirm anything, though.

level 3

Clothing/Textiles was announced as one of the first the phase 1 child chains, no?

level 4

Out of the 3 original child chains launching alongside main net, we only know 2, confirmed in the recent AMA to be a Korean smart city monitoring air particles (we don't know which city), and an agricultural chain (no info on this).

The third child chain was said to be "secret" and will be revealed in February.

Then we had the annual meeting and they upped it from 3 chains on launch to 6.

The clothing/apparel child chains are definitely going to happen, but they are not confirmed to be any of the child chains that are going live on launch of Main net.

They very well could be, since they upped it to 6 chains, but we don't know yet.

level 5

Thank you :)

At the very start of the conference there was a video (the one with english subtitles) which showed 6 types of industries (six bubbles placed in a ring formation with wtc in the middle). As the video did not translate what industries were displayed in the bubbles, I thought people might like to know what was written there for more context of the video

level 1

Thanks for the information bro
