Blockchain will disrupt everything! And the Finance is the first in line.

Blockchain offers a way for strangers to safely collaborate with each other. It enables trust while becoming the new intermediary. Take the banks as an example. They connect global financial markets, acting as trustworthy middlemen. Yet a recent UK poll found that 66% of people no longer trust banks to work in the society's interests.  

Blockchain offers banks an alternative approach. It enable banks the ability to launch new digital offering, and build trust. It will impact the way you do your job in future and it's vital that you are not left behind and in the dark.  

The South African Reserve Bank’s Project Khokha Blockchain Proof of Concept  

ConsenSys recently ran a Blockchain trial run with the SARB. The pilot was built on the Ethereum-based interbank payment Blockchain platform, where:

  • It provided full confidentiality between all participating commercial banks. 
  • Merged 14 different mirror ledgers into one real-time ledger.
  • Eliminated the need for auditing, providing full transactional security 

A Livecast Conversation To Start Your Blockchain Journey  

Time is short. Change is here. Traditional financial institutions need to get a handle on how distributed ledgers work. They need to get and the disruptive power they hold. This is why WTF and ConsenSys is hosting a Livecast to kick off the conversation.  

To provide the context the SARB Khokha project findings will form the backbone of the conversation. It will facilitate the debate on the need for financial executives to stay ahead of the curve.
