About BFC 2018NA

On November 14–15, 2018, FinTech Network welcomed 150 blockchain and finance professionals to the Hilton Back Bay in Boston, for two days of in-depth case studies from top financial institutions as well as high-level networking sessions.

The BFC NA 2018 program was developed after in-depth research discussions with the individuals and organisations at the forefront of the industry, curating practical experience of driving change. The result is an agenda with a laser focus on the most critical blockchain projects shaping the future face of financial services.

The motto of the conference was:

  • Consolidation: Explore the need for collaborative partnerships and a strong network between financial institutions to commercialise DLT.
  • Interoperability: Understand how to achieve interoperability between different blockchain platforms and legacy systems to support the move towards production.
  • Crypto Assets: Examine the current crypto space and the opportunities that tokenisation could bring to financial institutions.
  • The Digital Platform: Analyze the methods to move data to the digital platform, understanding whether a public, private or hybrid Blockchain is needed for data to be safe and secure.
  • Business Case: Hear latest use cases from financial institutions across North America and how they are improving existing business processes.
  • Regulation & Compliance: Assess the regulatory landscape surrounding blockchain technology and how markets are responding to change.
