Cryptocurrencies have been gaining much attention recently as we observe industry leaders and institutions taking part in discussions on Bitcoin or buying stakes in the cryptocurrency industry. It can potentially change the way businesses are conducted, and challenge established institutions such as central banks, exchanges, and even governments.

This conference will be an opportunity for industry professionals and regulators to improve their understanding of the area and explore how their institutions can address or engage in this technology. We aim to explore implications of crypto-currencies and the underlying technologies via in-depth panel discussions with industry stake holders; this will include financial institutions, venture capitalists, cryptocurrency entrepreneurs, lawyers and accountants.
