Keynote: Blockchain, Cryptoassets and the Future of the Banking Industry

Ron Quaranta, CEO, Wall Street Blockchain Alliance

For several years now, blockchain technology and cryptoassets have dominated headlines with both hype and promise. From the solutions that the technology is meant to offer, to confusion about whether cryptoassets, including bitcoin, are even legal, multiple industries around the world have been struggling to understand what it all means for their future. In this session, attendees will be able to cut through this noise and learn what blockchain really is, and what the technology is designed to do. We will also discuss what blockchain means for regional and community banks and how to be connected and part of this evolution.
