On uses his hands-on experience and deep knowledge of online marketing to create winning strategies for ICOs/STOs, crypto, and blockchain companies. Having earned the reputation of "crypto expert", he continues to contribute to this industry in ways that advance cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies. On has a law degree (LLB) and is also a certified Advocate by the Israeli Bar Association.To see a 2018 recap of On's Keynote Speeches and Interviews, please go here:

Cointelligence conducts data research and analysis for the crypto economy. They create relevant tools for investors, such as an impartial and accurate ICO/STO listing and rating system, and a new crypto exchange rating system. While it is possible to find huge amounts of data widely available to the public, collecting everything and taking only what you need is not an easy task. Cointelligence was created to bridge this information gap in the crypto economy. It is a market maker, focused on bringing blockchain and cryptocurrencies to the masses through the use of fundamental economics, real-time market data, and great industry coverage.

On's presentation will be divided into 3 sections: 1. A basic overview of the blockchain and cryptocurrency 2. How blockchain and crypto can help SMEs 3. Due diligence for cryptocurrency.

KBS PhD student Max Koghut will briefly explain his research on the study of the effect of blockchain technology on inter-organisational relationships. Blockchain technology is beginning to rewire inter-organisational business processes. Due to its decentralised nature and cryptographic capabilities, this emerging technology enables autonomous execution of so-called smart contracts - agreements between parties whose terms are recorded in a computer code and which can be automatically executed by the system when certain pre-defined conditions are met. The implementation of these technological advances implies conceptually different exchange mechanisms, thus challenging how conventional inter-organisational processes are organised and managed.
