Finance meets Blockchain

With recent news from AT&T, JPMorgan and Facebook one can say that Blockchain has finally arrived in the corporate world. Especially in the financial sector with its large amounts of data, numerous intermediaries and services, which have to be secured and verified, there are many possible applications for Blockchain.

The spectrum ranges from the ability to significantly reduce network and transaction costs to the ability to substantially reduce risks. Beyond that, it allows you to store, hedge, borrow, lend, transfer, collateralize, insure and much more. Blockchain based financial services are superior to their centralized counterparts because they are permissionless, censorship resistant, trustless, transparent and programmable.

​Numerous banks, central banks and regulators as well as start-ups from the financial technology sector (FinTechs) are already preparing to secure competitive advantages at an early stage. Are you ready?
