Blockchain technology will also be discussed at the Finetics™ Studio hosted by The Bancorp which will have founders of startups and Fortune 500 executives among many high-profile guests who will make their presence felt here.
Finetics™ Studio is the official Bank of Money 20/20 and the live event will take place on October 26-28 on the expo floor.
The event will be moderated by www.PaymentEye.com and will have industry leaders such as Rahul Gupta, group president, billings and payments, at Fiserv; René Lacerte, CEO and Founder of Bill.com; and Robert Carr, chairman, CEO and founder of Heartland Payment Systems who would come for a 15-minute one-on-one interviews with senior journalist Sarah Gill on the issues of the industry.
The blockchain technology is widely discussed these days as an inexpensive, secure, and also transparent option to traditional crumbling financial infrastructure.
Blockchain is also being used by colleges to authenticate their educational certificates and it is viewed with curiosity even by those who do not think highly of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin.
The discussion on this technology heated up after Blockchain specialist Nick Szabo, in a candid comment, said that the banks would need to abide by the same principles as are followed by Bitcoin if they want to get more out of blockchain.
For that, Nick had suggested that the financial world must be willing to accept the system of ‘permissionless blockchain.’ It will be interesting to see if this too would be discussed at this platform.
In a press note issued to the media, Frank Mastrangelo, The Bancorp’s CEO voiced his excitement over the development and said that “We’re excited to be hosting some of the brightest minds in financial services at the Finetics™ Studio, many of whom we have the pleasure of working with as clients.”
