The hype is over and 2018 is the year distributed ledger and blockchain technologies become real with financial institutions moving into production.

Against that backdrop, IMN is excited to announce Synchronize, April 19, 2018, New York and the support of Digital Asset (DA), the renowned provider of Distributed Ledger Technology, as Title Sponsor.

With a focus on capital markets applications, DA is working with regulated market infrastructure providers including the ASX and DTCC on post-trade clearing and settlement systems for cash equities, repurchase agreements and beyond.

Hear directly from CEO, Blythe Masters, as one of the keynote speakers on DA's road to adoption at some of the largest financial infrastructures in the world.

The Synchronize program and speakers will discuss key themes of:

  • Confidentiality - Is confidentiality in a distributed system a paradox? Are new cryptographic privacy techniques tested enough for use in financial markets?
  • Smart Contracts - The promise is there but are the current implementations up to the challenges of systemically critical financial markets? What lessons have we learned from public attacks? 
  • Interoperability - As we head towards a world of multiple different distributed ledger technologies, are we replicating the same silos of today or will these networks interoperate?
  • Regulation and Roles - Regulators are becoming increasingly comfortable with permissioned distributed ledgers but what do they mean for the future roles of financial institutions and how will regulation need to adapt?
  • Adoption - "Production deployments" are mentioned frequently, but what does it really mean to run this technology at scale? How do we overcome the chicken and egg problem of network effects without requiring all entities to transition at the same time? 

In this exciting time of innovation in financial services, Synchronize 2018 stands out as a platform for thought leadership, learning, and business development. Join over 500 senior financial services executives, leading practitioners, and regulators with real world experience implementing the technology at major financial institutions.

We look forward to seeing you at this must-attend gathering.
