Blockchain is the biggest development in technology that you may never have heard of…and for the financial industry its ramifications will be game changing.
Created originally as an enabling platform for Bitcoin, Blockchain technology – essentially a virtual ledger of transactions, peer shared across vast networks – is incorruptible, fast and direct. Blockchain will have a massive disintermediation affect as it systematically, and cleanly, cuts out the middleman.
If left untapped, as a senior executive in the financial sector, that ‘middleman’ could be you and your organisation.
With Blockchain technology set to explode over the next few years all manner of financial institutions are beginning to set up groups and task forces to assess the risks and possibilities. To harness Blockchain rather than wait to be made irrelevant as applications emerge.
So what is it? How can it be used by your organisation? What will be the functional, operational and regulatory ramifications? What should you consider when collaborating within your industry?
And what should you know now, as a senior executive, in order to play an authoritative role in the discussions, debates and decisions to come?
Join us for Blockchain 101 & Beyond. This intensive, interactive one day workshop, led by two of the world’s foremost authorities in emerging fintech trends and regulations, will brief you fully on the basics and help you peer-explore the possibilities and ramifications of Blockchain.
