Blockchain is revolutionising the exchange of value in a similar way to how the internet revolutionised the exchange of information and communication. There are two aspects of this technology: the promise of new opportunities and scope for cost savings. Capabilities around transparency and consensus will help mitigate the ever-present risk of documentary fraud. The traceability associated with blockchain could potentially provide assurance and authenticity of products in the supply chain. The immutability and digital uniqueness inherent in this technology also offers the potential to provide a secure transfer of value and deliver a solution to the trade finance problem of endorsement. Join us, as we explore some of the ideas such as real-time payments and insurance, that are disrupting the financial industry globally.
