    Why you should see it?

    For the past few years Bitcoin has been in the news with spectacular increases in value and equally spectacular declines. Crypto currencies appear to be both a speculator’s dream and nightmare and to be avoided by the responsible investor and business manager. Yet major banks have all moved aggressively into this sector from Goldman Sachs to the Bank of American which announced at Davos that they are investing the most. Some observers say that blockchain will drive the fourth industrial revolution. In an interview on CNBC, Steve Chiavarone, of Federated Investors, a US-based investment firm with $364 billion in customer assets explains why you should attend: “When you think about it from an enterprise perspective, it has the ability to replace reconciliation, which is expensive and requires back office, time, and paperwork, with more instantaneous verification. What that means is, companies can have more efficient supply chains. They can cut their back and middle office costs and that will allow businesses to flow more efficiently and will allow cost to be cut and that savings to be passed along. We think blockchain will one of five key technologies along with automation, robotics, AI, and the internet of Things.”
