Session #1: Catalyzing the Next Wave of Cross Border Payments
Cross-border payments supported by blockchain provide significant advantages to businesses and consumers. Blockchain technologies will enable cross border payments worldwide to be more cost-effective, increase transparency between lenders and borrowers, enable transactions to be almost immediate, enhance security and eliminate unnecessary risks. Currently, sending cross border payments through the current banking channels is a complex, multistep process that involves many intermediaries, fees and regulations. Blockchain may be able to solve these challenges by streamlining the process, reducing fees and storing every transaction in a secure distributed ledger. In this session industry experts will discuss why they either agree or disagree that blockchain is the future of cross-border payments and the steps needed to make this vision a reality.
Session #2: Cultivation of Cannabis on the Blockchain
Will blockchain technologies help advance the cannabis industry? The cannabis industry is making its way towards becoming the fastest growing agricultural product in the world, and the recent legalization of it in the United States is leading the charge. According to a recent Forbes article, over the next 10 years, the legal cannabis industry will see much progress around the globe and spending on legal cannabis worldwide is expected to hit $57 billion by 2027. Blockchain technologies could make compliant banking, cryptocurrencies and credit card processing possible for the cannabis industry. Our panel of experts will discuss innovative blockchain technology and how it’s disrupting the cannabis, CBD and hemp markets.
