The 6th Symposium on Distributed Ledger Technology


22 November 2022 - Gold Coast, Australia

Welcome to the 6th Symposium on Distributed Ledger Technology (SDLT)

Distributed Ledger Technology is an emerging technology, which provides the way to store and manage information in a distributed fashion. It enables the creation of decentralized crypto-currencies, smart contracts, eGovernance, supply chain management, eVoting etc over a network of computer systems without any human intervention. Unprecedented reliability and security over other cryptographic schemes has expanded the application domains of blockchain including financial services, real estate, stock exchange, identity management, supply chain, and Internet of Things.

The goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers, business leaders and policy makers in this area to carefully analyse current systems or propose new solutions creating a scientific background for a solid development of innovative Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) applications.
