Event description
How is Blockchain changing the path forward in establishing Digital Identity?

About this Event

The concept of digital identity is becoming increasingly more important as we conduct more and more of our transactions online. How do we know we can trust the person on the other side of the screen? How do we reduce fraud and enable more businesses to transact online? What role should the government and financial institutions play in establishing our identity?

Let's explore these questions and more at the Blockchain Hub panel event featuring experts in Fintech and cryptocurrency.
