Event description

Description

This event is meant to bring together thinkers, innovators, and those keen to become agents of change. We will focus on understanding blockchains, their implications, and the financial market developing along with this new technology.

First, a brief overview of the Blockchain technology, and explore its potential. Then, we will proceed further by giving a comprehensive snapshot of classic financial markets, its participants, the structural problems they are facing, and how blockchains could revolutionise the financial system.

Bringing together these two topics, the discussion will move into a first analysis of cryptocurrencies from a financial perspective. This market has been growing at an incredible pace and it is increasingly garnering attention from investors, financial institutions, and the media. However, general understanding of this asset class is underdeveloped and, coupled with speculative euphoria, it has resulted in highly volatile markets.

Key objective of this gathering is to layout an adequate framework to better appreciate the blockchain environment by analysing: opportunities and flaws of crypto-markets, technological challenges, and regulatory landscape. This will help us understand what the main drivers of this ecosystem are and, therefore, shed light on how to better discover value, assess valuations, and foresee future dynamics.

Our ambition is to build a community with an innovative and collaborative approach to finance.

In this context, we present Project DandYlion…

We will provide streaming services for thos not London based. URL and FB channel to follow in due course.
