This September in New York City, IMN will bring together major buy- and sell-side financial institutions, startups big and small, regulators and policymakers, technology experts, investors and professional service
The world’s biggest banks have been seriously exploring both threats and opportunities associated with the blockchain, the distributed ledger underpinning digital currencies such as bitcoin, for two years now. Everyone agrees the blockchain has the potential to change global finance in significant ways. But how, exactly? And how significantly? The blockchain’s potential is vast, but the universe of its applications to finance remains embryonic.
This event, the leading, independent conference exploring how the blockchain and finance intersect, will cut through the hype and help participants on all sides of the financial blockchain community get a clearer sense of where innovation is happening today, and where the opportunities for change are ripest tomorrow. How is the blockchain upending the securities market? Is a private or a public blockchain best for finance? How will the blockchain change the compliance and regulatory landscape? As an attendee, you’ll understand the very real transformations the blockchain has brought to the markets today, as well as the rich and still-unexplored possibilities for change across many other corners of institutional finance. The event’s speaker faculty will be broad and diverse, representing the diversity of this unique, emerging universe.
The blockchain will serve as the foundation for a fundamental reimagining for how assets are exchanged and capital — broadly understood — moves across the globe. The coming internet of value will be as transformative for financial assets as the consumer internet has been for information. This event is a must-attend for anyone looking to meet the key stakeholders in this space, understand the different paths global finance could take as the blockchain becomes more widely adopted, and get ahead of the curve as the markets undergo their most fundamental architectural transformation in generations.
