The Digital Currencies Forum

Central banks were not too worried about cryptocurrencies or digital currencies until Facebook started talking about issuing a digital currency. Now Central Banks are rushing to study digital currencies, even though the rationale remains unclear, and may even be at cross-purposes with projects such as the EU's new digital wallet proposal.

Neobanks and digital payments players are allowing customers to hold, buy and sell cryptocurrencies. Should established banks follow suit? Are Central Banks about to start building new operating systems on blockchain technology? Will neobanks have the edge in the world of digital currencies and digital assets? What do regulators have to say about it all? And how close are we to seeing the first digital central bank notes?

We address these critical issues in the Digital Currencies Forum on 15 July. We welcome guests from the world of banking, the world of payments, and the world of digital assets, along with regulators and speakers who have seen the world from both sides. Join us for a top-level forum and speak to the players on the frontlines.
