Event Details

In a year offering much positive economic news, few assets have appreciated more substantially than alternative currencies. This is with a backdrop of financial figures like Jamie Dimon voicing outright skepticism on their trends, even as his firm engages in significant related investment. Is this merely the latest speculative excess, or are there underlying dynamics all businesses would be wise to understand?

This month will feature a market professional well versed in adapting to financial innovation to offer his clear and realistic views on bitcoin and blockchain. How this emerging technology operates, its potential effects across various industry sectors, and its implications for business process, payment, and international remittances.
