    AustCham Emerging Technology Program Session 2
    Blockchain 2.0 - Digital Assets and the Tokenisation of everything

    Evening Seminar | Tue 18 Sep 2018

    Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies are transforming financial services.  We are now seeing widespread institutional adoption across trade finance, supply chains, clearing and settlement.

    But the Digital Asset revolution is far from over. Initial Coin Offerings, or ICOs, are now providing start-ups with an attractive alternative to traditional Venture Capital and Crowdfunding, and a totally new way of looking at financing innovation and creating economic value. Institutional and central bank experiments are also pointing to a need to create digital representations of traditional assets - including money - that retain some of the same underlying functions and properties, such as transferability and fungibility. 

    In this session, our speaker Danielle Szetho, inaugural CEO of FinTech Australia, will cover topics including:

    What is tokenisation, and why is it so significant?

    The history and evolution of Digital Assets, including Bitcoin, Ether and other protocol-based tokens

    What different types of Digital Assets are emerging, and what do they enable

    How traditional finance organisations could be affected by, and are experimenting with Tokenisation

    Emerging Regulatory trends that could impact the future of the industry
