Blockchain has been one of the most talked-about innovations of the last decade. Big ambitions for this secure ledger technology are evolving into early roll-outs in financial services and beyond. Visionary financial inclusion organizations also have launched initiatives with blockchain. These include personal identity verification (eg, a globally portable, biometrics-based ID), property ownership demonstration (real estate, mortgages), ethical supply chain (demonstrating the source and journey of textiles, agricultural products, precious gems), loan tracking, and trans-national payments using crypto-currencies.
This panel presents speakers who are on the leading-edge of blockchain projects for financial inclusion goals. They will provide commentary on where the best application opportunities are, what challenges to adoption exist, and how organizations like yours should be considering a future involving blockchain.
