Blockchain technology is the hottest topic in the fintech sector. According to Don and Alex Tapscott, authors of Blockchain Revolution, “The Blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financials transactions but virtually everything of value.” It’s disrupting the ecosystem as we know it; blockchain startups across the globe are building infrastructure to support both public cryptocurrency markets and projects that will transform how ALL financial transactions are executed and recorded.

Whether we like it or not, Blockchain is the future; that’s why, on the stormy Shanghai evening of June 28th, Digital Bootcamp Asia hosted three experts in Blockchain and Cryptocurrency and brought industry professionals together to inspire each other and discuss the greatest benefits and challenges these technologies present to the world.

Nicholas Krapels—you can call him “Professor K”—kicked the event off for us. Using the shipping container as a proxy to discuss China and Blockchain’s significance in the international community, Professor K walked us through the trends that create Big Data and the three major generations of Blockchain technology. His eloquent use of case studies was essential for breaking these concepts down for the audience.

Next, we were joined by Bruno Botelho, Chief Marketing Officer at LiqEase and Blockchain, Fintech, and Trade Finance professional. We gained insight into “smart contracts” and how they’re transforming the daily operations of firms across the globe. Blockchain could make a secure and transparent decentralized global trade finance ecosystem a reality; invoices converted into smart contracts that can be traded eliminate the inefficiencies of local-bank middle-men.

The event was closed out by Cryptocurrencies, presented by Victor Lee, CEO of Bitcurate. We were educated in the Cryptocurrency regulations across the top economies of the world: The United States, China, Japan, South Korea, and United Kingdom, to name a few. Some of these have embraced cryptos, taxing them and integrating them into the marketplace. Others, like China, have declared them outright illegal and have banned ICO’s. It will be interesting to see how countries (de)regulate and (de)integrate cryptos heading into the 2020’s.
