About this event

The terms "Blockchain technology" and "distributed ledgers technology (DLT)" can have abstract and at times controversial meanings, yet hold great promise to democratize access to financial services. Do you know the definitions for these terms; what they reference, and how they are currently applied to technology both today and tomorrow?

While many use cases center upon potential future uses, one company headquartered here in Chicago is proving this concept: Athena Bitcoin, Inc. Bitcoin ATMs currently offer avenues to the unbanked to obtain financial services with a case study using Colombia, Mexico, and the US. Crypto as an industry has achieved mass exposure with the unveiling of Libra. In the future, if and when Libra moves forward, while it may not be a great fit for any or everyone, it will serve as the great sorting hat fueling adoption of digital currency in one way or another.

Join us and our panel of experts who will demystify the disruptive nature while providing a new yellow brick road, one to the future of financial services paved with digital currency that has been discussed in mainstream media. From the potential that Libra offers to Bitcoin, how does crypto democratize access to wealth? The program will be followed by a social & professional networking session.

Takeaways

During this event, we will cover: - The basics of Blockchain and cryptocurrency - Concrete definitions of these terms and their coordinating or potential future uses in financial services - How this technology will revolutionize financial services both today and tomorrow, particularly with those that are unbanked or underbanked - Industries potentially targeted first by the disruptive, yet productive technology - Nuances behind the large corporate currencies e.g. J.P. Morgan Coin and Libra v. Bitcoin - Potential legal and regulatory implications of working with these currencies.
