Event Details

Fintech Wordwide, proudly brings you our 8th Blockchain Conference.

Over the past year, we’ve been to London, New York, Hong Kong, San Francisco, and several other major cities exploring Blockchain and distributed ledger technology. Our focus has been on Blockchain beyond crypto currency. If you’re interested in learning why large banks, tech giants, governments, start-ups and investors are getting involved at alarming rates, this is your conference.

We are in the age of realignment and that’s where we find Blockchain technology. A distributed ledger, born from clever mathematics and a desire to transact anonymously while maintaining trust on both sides of the exchange. Any process involving middle-men or trusted 3rd parties is ripe for disruption. A new billion dollar industry is its infancy. The world is starting to wake up to the vast number applications for such technology. The internet changed the world in 20 years. Blockchain will do it in 5-10.
