Tim Janssen (MSc) has a master degree in theoretical physics. He became a blockchain enthousiast after working on blockchain usecases in the energy sector at alliander. Currently he works at 216lab as a blockchain expert. He is responsible for the strategy of innovation projects and for the architecture of blockchain use cases. He expects to air his first blockchain pilots this year in healthcare and real estate. Tim has also written his own smart contracts on ethereum and has worked out several blockchain prototypes. The blockchain can be used to create trust and in doing so cutting out the middle man. If done correctly this results in less bureaucracy and fraud. Tim dreams of a world where private data is owned by people themselves on a public blockchain instead of centralized parties like facebook. He often struggles with the current law and regulation that in his view is often outdated and in the way of innovation. A lot of his work is finding creative ways to find a middle road to use blockchain that is in line with law and regulation. Tim firmly believes that in order to use blockchain to its full potential it needs to be public and people need to change the way they think. He therefore informs people about blockchain whenever possible through presentations and interactive panel forums.
