Just seven years after the creation of Bitcoin, the technology that underpins it, known as the blockchain, is poised to revolutionize the financial industry. Financial institutions and services that adopt the right blockchain technology will gain a competitive advantage with significantly reduced operating costs, reduced operational risks, improved cyber security and new revenue-generating opportunities.
And yet, to realize these benefits, a deeper dialogue between financial professionals and blockchain experts is needed to create blockchain applications that will meet regulations within the next decade.
In this talk, our speaker will give an exclusive look at compelling, practical use cases that allow financial institutions and services to achieve these benefits within five years in domestic and international payments, clearing/settlement, commercial bills, and trading, while maintaining regulatory compliance.
Discussed topics include the following:
- The challenges that blockchain technology helps solve for the financial industry and the competitive advantage it conveys to companies that adopt it
- What the prevailing thought leadership about blockchain gets wrong about financial use cases
- Market potential, global players, and venture funding levels
- A realistic long-term vision for the impact of blockchain technology in finance and other industries
