Blockchain for Financial Markets: Infrastructure for Digital Assets

Details

This conference is not only about addressing the fundamental and structural changes that are required within the global financial services but also looking very closely at how blockchain technology can help deliver them.
Through the participation of 6 hand-picked, seasoned companies from the blockchain and fintech sector, we are aiming to broaden the discussion as well as drive trust and accelerate the adoption of digital assets by institutional clients. We believe this could lead to a truly open global financial system as envisioned by blockchain and lead to greater innovation, and efficiency within the global financial system.
