Blockchain Forum - March 5
Why digital currency is important to corporations
Speaker: Jon West, Vercey Blockchain Consulting
Cryptocurrencies have a deservedly bad reputation. They have been used for several harmful and illegal activities. It is therefore easy to dislike them, write them off, etc. What if all of the bad stuff is getting fixed? What if one takes a look at what can be done with digital currencies that cannot be done with fiat? Answers to these questions begin to paint a very different picture for digital currencies.
Come listen to Jon provide answers to the following questions:
- What advantages to digital currencies have over fiat?
- Why will we see trillions of digital currency transactions?
- What is the potential economic impact of digital currencies?
- What are the different ways this will affect corporations and individuals?
- Why are governments beginning to support digital currencies?
- How will this impact corporations, banks, and individuals?
