The Conference brought together many leaders in the biomedicine and blockchain industries of both China and the U.S., attracting nearly 100 local VC investors, regulatory executives, university professors, engineers and entrepreneurs of blockchain industry. Starting from the hot topics, such as “How will blockchain affect the health and medicine ecosystem?” and “What are the early challenges faced by health and medicine blockchains?” and “How health and medicine regulation interacts with blockchains?” at the industrial forum, participants conducted a heated and fruitful discussion on the current trend of the bio-pharmaceutical blockchain, industrial regulation and current challenges faced by the biomedical blockchain.
After the meeting, the eager audience continued to exchange ideas with the keynote speakers regarding the current situation and development of bio-pharmaceutical blockchain and to look forward to its promising future.
