Blockchain technology eliminates double spending and thus the middle men (banks) from global transactions. Find out what it means for you and why large financial institutions are getting involved early. Hear directly from the people making it happen.



Our events have several opportunities throughout the day to meet with other delegates and speakers. If you are interested in blockchain technology beyond virtual currencies, there’s no better place to discuss the future of financial services.
