Event Details

A Convergence of Blockchain and Financial Services

Distributed: Markets will bring together payments and financial services leaders and entrepreneurs driving the blockchain movement forward for a day of critical dialogue and networking at The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta on February 27, 2017. With blockchain technology at the forefront of the fintech discussion for 2017 and Bitcoin prices soaring, collaboration between legacy institutions and blockchain innovators will be vital.


It’s fitting that this historic event be held in market-driven Atlanta. According to the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Georgia has evolved to become the epicenter of a growing segment of the financial services industry, with 70 percent of U.S. financial transactions passing through Atlanta’s “transaction alley.”

Georgia fintech companies generate annual revenue of more than $72 billion, placing the state third in the nation, behind only New York and California.

Approximately 100 fintech companies are headquartered or have significant presence in Georgia with six of the 10 largest U.S. payment processing firms based in the state. These companies and others process over 118 billion transactions per year representing over $2 trillion of purchase volume, supporting nearly 4 million merchants.
