Why FinTech ?

FinTech is redrawing the lines in the financial sector. Over 80% of financial institutions believe business is at risk to innovators and 77% expect to adopt blockchain as part of an in production system or process by 2020. Even more so, funding for FinTech projects is shifting from VC direct funding to mainstream investments.

The goal of this year’s conference is to provide attendees an introduction to this emerging sector. Key questions that will be answered include.

  • Where mobile payment adoption has occurred and the technologies supporting it
  • What is the process of introducing new cryptocurrencies into the market?
  • How will assets be transferred between single, centralized traditional and Blockchain-enabled ledgers?
