CardWeb.com’s CardConferences today features the DIGITAL CURRENCIES + THE BLOCKCHAIN conference, July 28, in New York City.
The financial world has woken up to the commercial potential of distributed ledger technology.
Banks around the world are starting to experiment with Bitcoin, Ripple, and other decentralized database systems influenced and inspired by Satoshi Nakamoto’s creation. But this Cambrian explosion of cryptocurrencies and protocols has raised a series of fascinating questions:
Can the technology behind Bitcoin be bifurcated from the currency, as some recent entrants claim?
Is the endgame the decentralization of trust, as Bitcoin’s early adopters proclaimed, or just more efficient business processes?
And will coming regulations allow digital currency innovators to safely flourish – or simply squelch them?
Whether you’re a Bit-curious banker or a digital money diehard, this conference is a must-attend for those interested in the future of financial transactions.
