Oslo Blockchain Day is a great event organised by Jon Ramvi and Blockchangers, and with good sponsors such as Kantega. We have followed the development of blockchain, distributed ledger technology and intellectual property based on open source. One of our examples is the patents of the South-African upstart Custos. Another case is the exponential growth of applications, and also how Chines actors such as Bubi files patent applications.
Haakon Thue Lie (NO) and Andreas Werner (NO), Partners, Leogriff: Contributed in two talks:
