Flowchain Ecosystem: The Solutions for AI Model Training and Distributed Network Storage of Streaming Data - Angelina Huang, Flowchain
Flowchain is a hybrid blockchain containing one public blockchain and multiple private blockchains. To run the hybrid blockchain in real-time without compromising the security, PPKI (Pseudonymous Public Key Infrastructure) is essential to the network. PPKI enables fast auditing to transfer data between public and private blockchains and provides secure-enough authentication method with fewer costs regarding energy consumption. Flowchain ensures the accuracy of data collected from the IoT devices which further benefits the AI model training. The AI model trained by accurate data is expected to provide valuable insights. More, Flowchain is integrated with IPFS, a distributed web which acts as a distributed network storage for streaming data. The solution can store real-time data streams on IPFS nodes. It is particularly suitable for video live broadcast and media streaming applications.

RealMarket is a FinTech/RegTech company producing innovative alternative finance solutions using enterprise blockchain and machine learning. Our ultimate vision is a fully programmable economy powering groundbreaking and sustainable development worldwide. To make this vision a reality we are working on a way to make blockchain solutions which are constructive rather than disruptive. These kinds of solutions match up well with existing regulatory regimes and levels of business and regulatory automation, providing a smooth upgrade path from completely manual processes to fully automated ones. Hyperledger Fabric is vital to our efforts as it ensures that the store of business-vital data and the rules governing their transformation are securely distributed and guaranteed to be agreed-upon for all participants. Our first major project is an integrated web platform combining equity crowdfunding, a private equity secondary market, cap table management, and business process automation. The ultimate goal of the platform is to enable private companies to be IPO-ready from their very inception.

Elevator Track: The Key To A Secured Smart City - Angelina Huang, Flowchain
With the breaking development of 5G and IoT technologies, the concept of Smart City no longer exists in fiction. However, the data privacy and security inevitably become the biggest concern while the data is greatly collected and analyzed for building the AI models. A solution to preserve and de-humanize the data appropriately needs to be addressed. Flowchain proposes the latest product, Flowchain USB Dongle. It integrates with the hybrid blockchain technology based on Flowchain and Hyperledger Fabric for both IoT and hardware industry to utilize the "tokenized hardware" scheme as a solution for such technical challenges. Tokenized hardware benefits the data security, privacy, and decentralization by associating cryptocurrency tokens to hardware devices.

Elevator Track: BGI Blockchain Application – To Co-build a Database of Interpretation Standards for Genetic Variation - Yuantong Ding, BGI
Genetic variation is the difference in DNA sequences between individuals within a population and it is closely related to disease and health status. Accurate interpretation of the clinical relevance of each genetic variation depends on the aggregation of a large amount of population genetic and phenotypic data. However, currently such data are often isolated and owned by different hospitals, companies or organizations. And the sensitivity of genetic data, privacy protection compliance risk, inconsistency between test and interpretation protocols, difficulties in data ownership protection and supervision are all barriers for efficient data sharing and mining.

Here we provide a solution to this problem and present a demo for breast cancer genetic variation interpretation as a showcase application. We build a distributed consortium network through blockchain, cryptography and other technologies, with the endorsement of authoritative credit units as the central authentication node and joint-efforts from related parties. Our system insured that all data, interpretation conflicts and resolving history are open, traceable, tamper-proof, meeting necessary ethical and regulatory requirements, auditable and regulated, thus can provide solid scientific support for the consensus interpretation and clinical validity of genetic variation. Furthermore, our database can be easily expended to the interpretation of thousands of cancer susceptible gene variants, promoting the value of multi-party joint mining of genetic big data, and greatly driving innovation in related fields.

Building a Media Registry with Git and Sawtooth - Chris Tse, Cardstack
Metadata about media like music and movies contains many overlapping layers about authorship, ownership, representation, release history, binary assets, and references to related works, etc. Current generation of on-chain data modeling tools are often not flexible enough to reflect the myriad of linkages within metadata schema. Moreover, many of the source data provided by media owners are often incomplete or even incorrect. A decentralized media registry will need to do more than merely encode the metadata on-chain, but also coordinate multi-party workflows between competing entities that holds overlapping data each other’s prized media catalogs. In this presentation, Chris will show how one large record label and music publisher is able to use this technique to correlate a subset of their mutual catalog using this technique of using Git as a Layer 2 application state encoding scheme.

Improving Rice Cultivation in Asia Through Blockchain - Saptarshi Choudhury, Paramount Software Solutions
A large proportion of Asian population consume rice as a staple food however the farming practices in many countries are outdated and the yield is lower than can be achieved with digital solutions.Further the logistics environment and storage facilities are not upto the mark and there are still discrepancies in the supply chain due to opaque operations adding losses to the value chain.There is also a huge gap between the processed rice or a product made using it sold in the market and the price paid to the farmers which forces many to leave farming and look for other options.There is a lack of a legitimate identity of the farmers in many developing Asian countries which hinders the credit policy created for them under different initiatives.Saptarshi will discuss on the improvement in the Rice cultivation in Asia through blockchain with a focus on the ROI for investment in this sector.

End-to-end Pork Meat Traceability - A Live Enterprise Production Use Case on Hyperledger Sawtooth - Tim Hadsel-Mares, ScanTrust
Tim will present a SanTrust case study in the area of pork meat traceability that was implemented with a large multinational FMCG company using Hyperledger Sawtooth. The project is a live production implementation at large scale in South East Asia, where an end-to-end pork meat traceability use case was implemented to make consumers the history of their product available via scanning of a QR code in the super market. It's probably one of the first really large blockchain implementations in South East Asia at such a scale.

The presentation will include explanations on the use case and the problem solved, a live demonstration of the case, explanation on the technical set-up and challenges/lessons learnt.

Unlocking Private Company Value with its Capture and Distribution in a Permissioned/less Distributed Environment - Shruti Kulkarni & Sanjay Kumar Nishank, Intain
Funding in private companies by the VCs and Angel investors is an effort intensive process with substantial transaction costs for both the investors and startups/SME’s. Additionally, the demand for continuous information and liquidity/value unlocking for the early investors puts great stress on the companies, leading to mistrust in the overall environment.

In this demo, Sanjay will demonstrate a solution that uses a combination of:
1. Fabric blockchain, to bring symmetry and transparency in capturing value of the startup/SMEs
2. Ethereum blockchain, that helps
(a) existing investors have their equity value in digital tokens and provide continuous view to the company's changing value
(b) potential investors have a transparent view of the company performance and shorten investment process with seamless token transfer, enhancing liquidity of the equity for both companies and investors

Elevator Track: Circular Supply Chain - Alissa Worley, Accenture
In complex supply chains, smallholder producers are often stuck in a cycle of subsistence production because they receive a paltry slice of the economic pie.  Markets for sustainably-certified products are in high-demand, with high premiums, but incentives for producers are misaligned. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware that today’s economic and social models still fuel inequalities, encourage waste, and increase threats to our environment and health. They, like us, want to do something about it. Using Hyperledger Fabric, digital identity and payments technologies, our prototype, built in collaboration with AWS, MasterCard, Everledger and MercyCorps, shows that we can. This discussion will provide a brief overview.

Elevator Track: Hedera Consensus Service - Sami Mian, Hedera
Hedera Consensus Service provides custom Hyperledger Fabric networks with decentralized consensus on the validity and order of blockchain transactions without the need to configure a RAFT1 or Kafka2 ordering service. Additional use cases include, but are not limited to, financial markets, matching engines (like those used in Uber or AirBnb), or supply chain negotiations (e.g., several competing factories bidding on parts from several competing parts suppliers).

The Hedera Consensus Service is the first Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) network service to provide solely the validity and order of events and transparency into the history of events over time without requiring a persistent history of transactions. As a result, the Hedera Consensus Service provides these benefits of a fast, fair, and secure consensus at a lower cost than any other public distributed ledger network
