Oracle Open World is fast approaching and Blockchain is on the agenda. Oracle is preparing to welcome over 50,000 customers in San Francisco, CA the week of Oct. 22-25 at Moscone Center. In July, Oracle announced the general availability of their Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service with early adopters like CargoSmart, Certified Origins, and Arab Jordan International Bank. The Oracle OpenWorld conference will offer attendees the chance to hear directly from these customers as well as some of the foremost Blockchain industry experts in the world like Leanne Kemp, CEO of UK Blockchain start-up Everledger. The conference offers use cases, hands-on labs, demos and perhaps most importantly the opportunity for customers to have interactive discussions with developers and users.
