From digital identities to centralized medical records, there has been no shortage of speculation and anticipation over the potential uses of blockchain technology.
Blockchain has been at the tip of every analyst’s tongue since 2008, when Satoshi Nakamoto introduced the idea in their famous whitepaper ‘Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System’.
If you have read the headlines, blockchain is set to revolutionize everything from global financial systems to video games. Despite media frenzy, education on the real-world application of blockchain in our day-to-day life has been few and far between.
At the upcoming Money 20/20 conference, Veem CEO and co-founder Marwan Forzley will shed some clarity on this groundbreaking technology. “The Real World of Blockchain” aims to take blockchain out of the lab and into the real world.
Use cases in lending, investing, and ticketing are just a few areas where blockchain’s transparency, security, and simplicity have great promise. However, the dynamic nature of the fintech industry also presents issues of trust and accountability when introducing a new and controversial technology such as blockchain.
Forzley, as well as other industry leaders Sunayna Tuteja, TD Ameritrade, and Shailee Adinolfi, ConsenSys, will discuss the potential and challenges that blockchain is bringing to the financial industry. The panel will be moderated by Money 20/20 Editor-in-Chief Sanjib Kalita.
Moving away from the abstract and the academic, the panel will focus on the practical and real world applications of blockchain. As a veteran of the fintech industry, Forzely will share his unique experience harnessing this emerging technology to build a global payment network and empower businesses around the world.
