DLT and the future of public blockchains

Virtual panel   Virtual   
  Thu 27 May 2021 13:00 - 14:00

Public blockchains are becoming more accepted across financial services and use cases in payments, smart contracts, smart assets, digital identity, clearing and settlement are growing. These blockchains offer scalability, cost saving, speed, security and transparency in transactions. However, issues remain around privacy limitations, lack of governance and adoption. This panel will discuss the applications of public blockchains within finance and digital money, exploring their role in digital representations of commercial money as well as their potential use within central bank digital currency rollout strategies.
