Beyond Bitcoin-Game Changing Cost Savings through Security Token Offering (STO)

In early 2019, Ziyen will launch the first oil & gas Security Token Offering (STO) to be regulated by the SEC, ZiyenCoin, creating a fully traceable and instantaneous movement of cash. This revolution will have the ability to push down the price of oil production by removing volatilities and finance changes at every step of the way. STOs have the potential to fully reinvent and redefine today’s system, as well as capture anywhere from 3-5% cost savings in transaction costs alone. During this session, Mr. Caithness will provide real examples of utilizing STOs and the benefits you can achieve, beyond the guaranteed cost savings, such as a fully transparent transaction history, navigating or eliminating the volatility of oil prices, added security and removing other disruptive factors that may impact oil prices. The speed at which this is happening and changing the way oil will be traded makes this a session you cannot miss or risk being left behind.

Blockchain as an Enabler of the Sustainability Movement

Through transparency and accountability blockchain has the potential to be one of the most powerful tools to create a more sustainable world.  By removing inefficient and inaccurate ways to track sustainability efforts the organization will have the power to remove any risks of fraud, corruption and other uncertainties.  Furthermore, it will reduce costs and bureaucracy by being able to track and monitor in real-time which will in turn also encourage greater investment and engagement.  During this session uncover why is blockchain a near perfect solution for an organization’s sustainability movement.

A Smart Contracts Primer for O&G Needs

Blockchain makes smart contracts possible by automating transactions that are commonly performed manually and removing the need for a financial and legal “middleman” to validate these transactions. By embracing smart contracts, transactions that would previously be burdensome can become automatic creating vast efficiencies, reduction of costs, increase trust and transparency which will virtually eliminate costly contract disputes. Gain a comprehensive understanding of the upstream, midstream and downstream use cases for smart contracts to identify the most compelling areas to embark on your journey.

The Power and Promise of Blockchain Technology in Royalty Management

The current system for governing royalties and payments is extremely complex and costly, involving a number of parties/contracts, and often leads to disputes caused by inaccurate or insufficient data. Blockchain technology will drastically moderatize the current system and allow the organization to better navigate complex laws, court rulings and legal jargon that determines how billions of dollars are distributed every year. Move beyond paper contracts and seemingly endless spreadsheets to lower costs, reduce the risk of disputes, increase clarity and improve the overall transfer of money.

What Does Trade Compliance Have to Do with Blockchain?
