Blockchain, distributed ledgers and smart contracts represent a seismic shift in how financial markets, and all aspects of the global economy, operate. In the same way that the internet gave us a powerful way to share and access information, blockchain technology now gives us a powerful way to share and access value.
As we work to incorporate and adapt these powerful advances in technology – including the emergence of digital currencies – to the world of “Finance 2.0”, having an organized, strategic approach will help all participants involved in the global, distributed ledger ecosystem.
The long term result will be new asset classes, increased market efficiencies, more cost-effective technology solutions and ultimately greater value and wealth creation for all participants in global financial markets.
