WallDecaux met these 10 remarkable blockchain startups

Philipp Schulz, Co-Founder of TV Two, explains how blockchain will evolve the TV ads

Toy car controlled via blockchain, live showcase of crypto tags and TV going programmatic on the blockchain.

These are three out of ten use cases, shown at last week’s WallDecaux Blockchain Demo Day, which was co-organized by Blockchain Circle. Why do events like this matter?

Not dealing with emerging technology today is more dangerous for established companies than neglecting the impact of the internet in the nineties. We are in for a tremendous shift of the ways companies operate, communicate with customers and interact with employees. Strict competitive borders between corporations are disappearing as technological leadership becomes key. With the words of Andreas Knorr, Director Marketing at Wall AG:

„The whole value chain of producing goods and services and offering them to your customers is impacted by emerging technologies. It’s very important to explore and understand this impact today.“

There is hardly a better way to embrace complex emerging technology than discussing it directly with its innovators. During the WallDecaux Demo Day blockchain pioneers like ConsenSys, Riddle&Code and Slock.it shared the same stage with young companies like Yptokey, TV Two and WOM.

Events like this Demo Day help both startups and corporates to prevent the tunnel-view and get the much-needed inspiration for new projects. The days of the blockchain adoption are still young, the chances are still huge. All parties interested in building sustainable use cases can benefit from the open and fair exchange.
