Day two of Legalweek 2020 kicked off with a talk from part-time keynote speaker and full-time blockchain and emerging technology researcher Bettina Warburg. Her presentation covered topics ranging from the implications blockchain could have for the digital economy to how it might change the work done by e-discovery professionals.

For the uninitiated, blockchain was defined by Warburg as computers in the cloud that anyone can build applications on top of and no one can control. It’s a subject in which Warburg is well versed. She co-founded and acts as managing partner of the early stage venture capital fund Warburg Serres Investments, which according to her bio is focused on “the decentralization of trade and Blockchain Technology.”
