Topic: How Blockchains are disrupting the Financial Service Industry

Join us in an informative session @APPortunity (24th January, 2018, Duration: 45 Minutes, 2:00 PM to 2:45 PM) in one of our Session Halls for Fintech, AI & Bots.

Blockchain technology is a fundamental evolution of how we record, confirm and share data. All without requiring trusted third parties. This talk focuses on how blockchains are disrupting all aspects of the financial service industry and what this means for the future.
At this session the attendee learns about how blockchain based fintech startups are challenging existing financial service industry offerings like banking, insurance, stock exchanges, etc. They will learn about blockchains, smart contracts and ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) and the implications of these technologies on the future of the industry.
