Speaker "Liesl Eichholz" Details Back



The value of Big Data Analytics meeting the Blockchain


The use of blockchain technologies is gaining momentum around the world and the volume of data residing in the Blockchain is growing at an exponential rate. Compounding this “big data dilemma”, massive amounts of social media data related to blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies are also being generated. As a result, big data analytics is becoming absolutely crucial in uncovering hidden patterns in the underlying transactional data, gaining key insights into cryptocurrency trends and helping organizations use the blockchain to make more informed decisions. [NOTE] Applying alongside colleague Garrett MacDonald - we tend to riff off each other in a speaking context, so would appreciate being on the same panel if that's an option.
