The Consumer Electronics Show (CES), organized by the Consumer Technology Association, will be held in Las Vegas January 5–8, 2017. The prestigious annual event, which focuses on all things tech, will include a conference, “Reimaging Money: Swipe, Tap, Blink or Blockchain?”, under The Digital Money Forum, that is scheduled to take place on January 5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall. The conference will explore the current state of money and new payment systems, borderless e-commerce, biometrics and authentication systems, as well as virtual currencies and the blockchain economy.
The three main topics that will be discussed at the conference are:
- Blockchain promises to change Fintech (and other industries) forever. Understand the if’s and when’s from industry experts
- Digital payments, banking and e-commerce are facing disruption. Hear about the latest trends, tools, pivots, and solutions
- Wealth management is heating up. Check out the latest in IoT, security, robo-advisors, machine learning, and behaviors
Over the course of the event, experts in blockchain technology from all domains of the tech industry will speak on several hot topics such as IoT, digital wallets, mobile apps and Dapps, money management, and the sharing economy. The conference will culminate with “Blockchain Unbound,” which is a discussion about “Where is the blockchain taking us and how will cryptocurrencies play into the future of world economies?” This panel will be moderated by Michael Terpin, founder of the BitAngels/Transform Group, and will include speakers from Consensys Systems LLC, Bloq, Adgetec, Bitcoin.com, and Blockchain Capital.
The blockchain’s presence at the conference signifies another milestone to mainstream adoption.
