The evolution of blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies (DLT) to serve the financial industry’s needs is proceeding rapidly. On Tuesday evening, October 9th, 2018 from 6:30 through 8:30 PM (ET) the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC) is hosting a meetup at its Tampa business campus at 18301 Bermuda Green Drive in Tampa, FL 33647.

In this meetup, you will hear about the architecture of Hyperledger Fabric and Hyperledger Explorer directly from the contributors. These and other topics will be discussed during an informal discussion hosted by DTCC.
