Day 2 - 26 April 2019

Fintech, Securities & Regulation

This track explores the use for Blockchain in the Financial Services industry, hearing advice and insight from bankers, insurers, and businesses overhauling their finance systems. It will delve into blockchain solutions within the financial services and the struggles banks are having with security and regulation. We will also dip into the Crypto world looking at the tighter regulations emerging and the rise of the STO. Will using blockchain technology in the financial capital markets to build a new infrastructure have benefits that outweigh the risks? Hear from the experts in these fields on their view of the marketplace.

The Token Revolution – Blockchain; Where we came from and where we may be going?

Tokenomics 101 with Blockchain News publisher Richard Kastelein who will not just present a historical perspective on Blockchain but also will show some of the projects he has worked on, as well as some of the ones that have crossed his desk.

Kastelein will also talk about tokenization and the potential shift to a new form of economics (tokenomics) which some say, may disintermediate not only venture capitalism but emerging, new forms of funding and token-based, financial instruments may be the beginning of a shift to liquidity being created by the people – from the bottom up rather than the top down.
