Digital currencies have emerged as the next frontier in finance and
technology. Implications for monetary policy, regulation, banking and
financial inclusion are significant. Technologies such as Bitcoin have
the potential to revolutionize the way people and companies spend,
invest, send money and use financial services in general. Consumers and
merchants can radically lower the cost of payments, enhance the user
experience by leveraging advances in touchless and mobile payments using
mobile devices, and help facilitate greater global integration and trade
by leveraging internet-based platforms. At the same time, regulatory and
security issues abound.

Please join us for a discussion with pioneers in this rapidly developing
field.

Monday, November 4th
