Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) have steadily developed as a key infrastructure element for many industries, in financial services and beyond.
According to the Deloitte 2021 Global Blockchain Survey, the vast majority (80%) of participants say their industries will see new revenue streams from blockchain, digital assets, and/or cryptocurrency solutions. This is to the backdrop of soaring global spending, with one research firm predicting an increase from 2021’s $5.3 billion to $34 billion by 2026.
These technologies are seen as key infrastructure to facilitate the integration of digital assets in corporate balance sheets, with developments such as BlackRock’s bitcoin ETF application as indications of strong momentum. According to McKinsey, while buffeted by the recent market downturn and bankruptcies, digital assets, and the technologies underlying them, still have the potential to transform business models across sectors.
Join us and our fantastic speakers on the 19th September at Ibec’s Dublin city centre office, from 8am to 10am, as we delve further into this topic and aim to provide an overview of how technical developments are impacting the world of financial services, to gain an understanding of how these will impact current business and enable new opportunities.
