It will benefit industry leaders, CEOs, CTOs and CIOs, the financial services sector, regulatory bodies, policy makers, start-ups, and researchers and will host several keynotes and panels with over 30 speakers including from NSE, SBI, and Global Financial Access. Many Indian players have tested the usage of Blockchain in areas of Trade Finance, Cross-border Payments, Bill Discounting, Supply chain financing, Loyalty and Digital Identity areas. A networking platform with global pioneers will accelerate India’s learning curve.

The Cryptocurrencies summit on 26 May throws open a unique and exclusive learning opportunity for corporates to educate their teams on the technology behind bitcoin, ether and other Cryptocurrencies, for wealth management firms to educate their clients on this new asset class, for crypto enthusiasts to trade in crypto, for the software developers, students, researchers to learn the fundamentals, and for Indian ICO aspirants to learn the practicalities of launching an ICO to raise funds. Global crypto investors, CTOs and inventors of crypto protocols will educate the audiences on nuances of creating and running self-sustaining cryptocurrency platforms, token business models and how these can be beneficially applied and integrated in various industry domains.The participants will have a chance to get educated on real Blockchain projects and meet the pioneers behind these revolutionary businesses over two days.

Himalaya Labs would be presenting their revolutionary next generation stock exchange platform - Himalaya Capital Exchange, a crypto NASDAQ that runs entirely on smart contracts- for entrepreneurs around the world to raise capital from global investors in seconds, for legally compliant shares and bonds.

“Blockchain is the next new wave in technology and everyone, from governments to the common man, stands a chance to benefit by riding this wave. India can become a global resource provider on Blockchain, as we are the biggest producers and exporters of engineering talent and computer scientists which is a prerequisite to technical prowess for making India a global Blockchain hub. We are reimagining capital markets and paying a tribute to Smart Contracts Pioneer Nick Szabo with our blue print for a next generation smart-contract run marketplace that deals in millions of dollars in securities ” says Founder & CEO of Himalaya Capital Exchange Ms. Arifa Khan.

Mr. Nick Szabo, a renowned cryptographer, computer scientist, legal scholar and the pioneer of ‘Smart Contracts’, who is among the most celebrated speakers in the summit, says: “The imposition of capital controls is a disaster for a modern trade-driven economy, a catastrophe which, however, digital technology and in particular the digital currency bitcoin, has the potential to mitigate.” He adds that “Decentralised marketplaces are the ultimate promise of Blockchain, which will have the most dramatic impact on society and economy.”

The summit will bring together the world's foremost experts, innovators and investors in the fields of Cryptography and Artificial Intelligence (AI) such as Nick Szabo, John Puttick, Arun Sharma, Sudin Baraokar, S V R Srinivas, Marc Pilkington, Sandris Murins, Rahul Bhasin, CTOs of NSE, SBI, L&T Infotech, IT secretary of Govt of Maharashtra, and legal experts from Amarchand Mangaldas, Khaitan & Co, Nishit Desai.
