Synchronize 2020: DLT, Crypto & Smart Contracts for Financial Institutions
Major financial institutions, securities exchanges, distributed ledger technology (DLT) practitioners, government agencies and global consultancies will come together at Information Management Network's (IMN) Synchronize 2020 conference, taking place March 30 at Convene Midtown West in New York City.
Digital Asset, Accenture and VMware are among high-level sponsors of the event, with additional supporters so far including Deloitte, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, Perkins Coie, Securitize, Symbiont, Blockchain Technology Partners, DTCC, Hyperledger, Prometheum, nui.id, XTRD, Chamber of Digital Commerce and Wall Street Blockchain Alliance.
Established as the premier conference dedicated to DLT, crypto and smart contracts in wholesale financial services, the one day conference offers the senior executives working on real world applications of these technologies the opportunity to discuss ongoing projects, network with likeminded peers and clear the path forward for a modernized and secure financial infrastructure.
Notable speakers include J. Christopher Giancarlo, 13th chairman of the U.S. CFTC under the Obama and Trump administrations and who is now partnering with Accenture on the non-profit Digital Dollar Project; the Australian Securities Exchange's (ASX) Deputy CEO, Peter Hiom, who will discuss the exchange's unprecedented replacement of its clearing and settlement system with Digital Asset's DLT technology; and Itaú Unibanco's Vanessa Fernandes da Silva, who directs the bank's vision to operate the first blockchain platform in Latin America.
