Cryptocurrencies rose in 2012 with a promise to revolutionize financial services and disrupt banking forever. Fast forward to 2018, a surge of interest in cryptocurrencies has led to a volatile market value, but also improvements in the technology (forks), focus on practical applications, and diversification of usage (currency, stock, other assets). The blockchain (distributed ledger technology) that powers Bitcoin has risen to the attention of public and private sector leaders as a fundamental shift in how transactions will take place and be recorded in the future. While Ripple (XRP) is already being tested among regional banks as a powerful remittances technology, cryptos like Civic (CVC) provides a universal digital identity, and Ethereum (ETH) can help financial service providers have smarter and verifiable contracts.This panel will explore the challenges and opportunities that cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology create for financial service providers
