At the next WHIPgroup Tech Entrepreneur Meetup on January 21 we will be exploring the practical application of Blockchain in FinTech.
Renee Leibler, a blockchain investor and an adjunct professor at Fashion Institute of Technology and Stephens Institute of Technology, will discuss how banks are adopting applications that leverage established models and enhance them with the benefits of blockchain. Case studies to include:
Blockchain for inter-bank transactions, as exemplified by JPMorgan’s “JP Coin” developed with Microsoft on the Etherium blockchain.\
Blockchain for cross border payments including Ripple (Fintech Startup), and IBM Worldwire — Stellar blockchain.
Shifting of the world reserve currency — will it be a digital version of the Dollar, the Yuan, the Euro or something entirely new?
Come to the WHIPgroup Tech Entrepreneur Meetup on Tuesday, January 21 to hear Renee discuss Fintech startups and established incumbents looking to enter the space of banking for the retail customer leveraging blockchain technology.
