Applying Blockchains to Financial Services

Date: 27 Feb 2019

As the price of crypto-currencies continue to fall and countless token values hit zero, it’s important to focus on the innovation taking place behind the scenes. In the first half of this one-day program, we will not only explore the fundamental principles of data storage and network effects, but will also look at how distributed ledgers are evolving. From layer two solutions and the introduction of new consensus protocols to the evolution of tokens and how they have outgrown their utility as security assets and stablecoins take centre stage. In the second half of the day we will take a closer look at use-cases that are benefiting from blockchains by exploring the business processes involved in implementing these new and emerging technologies.
