Top executives from Walmart, DigitalFutures, RewardOps, and DigitalBits were all in attendance to collaborate in discussions on integrating blockchain solutions into the loyalty sector.

Over the course of the three days, Loyalty Live dove deep into blockchain for enterprise with informative lectures and expert panels. Attendees were able to familiarize themselves with the technology and gain a deeper understanding of how blockchain systems could impact the daily lives of consumers.
