Featuring speakers Jeremy Allaire and John Beccia of Circle Internet Financial

Digital currencies have emerged as the next frontier in finance and technology. Implications for monetary policy, regulation, banking and financial inclusion are significant. Technologies such as Bitcoin have the potential to revolutionize the way people and companies spend, invest, send money and use financial services in general. Consumers and merchants can radically lower the cost of payments, enhance the user experience by leveraging advances in touchless and mobile payments using mobile devices, and help facilitate greater global integration and trade by leveraging internet-based platforms. At the same time, regulatory and security issues abound.

This event is sponsored by Boston University’s Center for Finance, Law & Policy, the Rafik B. Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering, and SMG Graduate Program in Mathematical Finance.
