  • Title




    Blockchain was designed as a way to execute financial

    transactions without using the traditional financial system.

    One could expect that the banks try to block that

    development, because it is about the existence of a major

    part of its services. However, the contrary happens: We see

    big banks investing in startups or collaborating with their

    toughest peers in tech consortiums. They understood the

    disruptive and game-changing character of the innovation

    for the whole industry and its potential for significant cost

    reductions and efficiency gains. They realized that it is time

    to explore with others the most likely paths of

    transformation the blockchain could take us down. 



    This 1-day course is specifically designed for executives

    from financial services industry that have already a basic

    understanding of blockchain and crypto currencies,and want

    to learn how to apply this new technology on real life use

    cases in banking and beyond.
