What are the technical and business impediments holding back the adoption of distributed ledger / blockchain technology? With multiple use cases in securities, payments and trade finance being discussed, how can the industry deliver on the promise of a frictionless and decentralised exchange of value and asset ownership? What is the role of consortiums such as the Linux Foundation Hyperledger project and other vendor ecosystems? Will cybersecurity be a driver or a hurdle for adoption? In this session, our panel will debate the technical and privacy barriers that need to be crossed to enable this technology to have a transformative impact on the financial industry.
