ICDA Blockchain Conference
Beyond the technology buzz, how is the blockchain shaping the future of banks, exchanges, derivatives markets and commodities from a business development perspective? 

With a whole raft of CEO speakers and plenty of clients and contacts to network with, this conference looks at the blockchain from a business development perspective. The ICDA Blockchain Conference will explore how the particular qualities of this new technology will change the face of business for exchanges, banks, CCPs and the industry at large. What are the implications of efficiency step-changes, trustlessness, transparency, security and regulation and what are the opportunities for product development and new business? Who will be the winners and losers? This is a good opportunity to understand the technology but also meet and network with leaders in the Fintech community, plus your clients and contacts as well.

Note: ICDA members receive a discount of 50% on the conference fees.
