2018 will be known as the year we witnessed blockchain-based technologies making ground-breaking progress in the financial sector and fostering a discussion among experts on whether we have finally achieved the holy grail of a decentralized, distributed ledger technology (DLT) backed solution relevant to the financial sector. Financial institutions like central banks, Goldman Sachs, Wall Street, and SWIFT have confirmed their interest in blockchain and have invested considerably in testing various proof-of-concepts. The question is - what have we learned so far? Will blockchain transform the financial industry completely and if yes - to which extent?
Join our first Disrupt Meetup of the Digital Finance Frankfurt community in Frankfurt. This blockchain meetup is also part of the German Blockchain Week 2019 and it discusses the application of blockchain technology in the financial sector.
Our meetups aim at bringing blockchain enthusiastic enterprises that want to get to know the technology, understand how it can be used and applied in their processes and those that already invest in it together.
