BIMA Breakfast briefing

At the very start of this year, Rob Belgrave, chair of BIMA’s Blockchain Council predicted that 2019 would be the year blockchain-based crypto currencies would bottom out. It would be the year lots of blockchain-based projects would start to bear fruit. And it would be the year that we all realised the future of value transfer (and the future of money) doesn't look like the past.

MIT would appear to agree, going so far as to say 2019 is the year blockchain becomes mundane… but more useful.

So what does that mean for you?

On 28 March, join a panel of blockchain (relatively) early adopters who will share their case studies and their stories of success and failure. They will discuss key strategies for success with blockchain this year. And there’ll be a Q&A for all questions blockchain-related.

Agenda:

8.30am - Arrive, coffee and networking

8.45am - Talks kick off

10am - Talks end

Tickets are free for BIMA members or £30 + VAT for non-members. To get your BIMA Member discount code email events@bima.co.uk
