BLOCKCHAINS AND YOUR BUSINESS
Some of the most exciting innovations in financial technology are leveraging the blockchain, a system of record-keeping that was created for the digital currency bitcoin but whose wider potential is now being explored by financial institutions worldwide. We have tweaked the name of the event, formerly known as Digital Currencies + the Blockchain, to reflect how the conversation has evolved in this fast-changing space.
This year’s agenda will cover a broad range of applications and issues facing this budding industry, from the practical benefits of shared ledgers for financial institutions to the disruptive implications for areas like micropayments and prediction markets. We’ll address the regulatory and risk questions that continue to swirl around bitcoin and other digital currencies, the challenges of satisfying competing demands such as privacy versus transparency, and the opportunities for financial inclusion and data standardization.
