October 24th, 2013

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.

Please join us for a discussion with pioneers in this rapidly developing field.
