Event description

Description

Cryptocurrencies are providing an alternate form of monetary exchange for businesses and investors, cutting high transaction costs associated with overseas banking procedures. With investors increasingly targeting crypto as a new form of long-term investment, what role can these currencies play in the future digital economy?

Alongside the rise of cryptocurrencies is the rise of blockchain technology. This technology helps capture all transactions of a financial process, originally intended to support cryptocurrency only. Now this technology is being rolled out for logistics and supply chain processes, to reduce fraud and bring a greater level of transparency. Blockchain has even been mooted as a digital solution to solve the Brexit Irish border issue, helping track the movement of goods and services.

Join us in Parliament to discuss how these technologies are reshaping the way businesses operate and how they could help improve lives of millions for the better.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dr Iwa Salami, Senior Lecturer in Financial Law and Regulation, University of East London

  • Steven George-Hilley, Founder and CEO, Centropy PR

  • Erik Wilgenhof Plante, Chief Compliance Officer, BeQuant

  • David Carlisle, Head of Community, Elliptic
