Live Webinar: What Financial Institutions Need to Know About Cryptocurrency
Date: Wednesday, September 18, 2019, 11 am -12 pm EST
Public blockchains – and the cryptocurrencies running on them – are here to stay. Capital flows through cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, continue to increase with some analysts forecasting that Bitcoin will soon surpass a $1T USD market cap. Meanwhile, the People’s Bank of China claims their state-backed “crypto RMB” will be “quite similar to” Facebook’s Libra Project, which is yet another project to spark global discussion. How do financial institutions manage risk related to digital assets and cryptocurrencies?
