This FinTech webinar will present the fundamental workings of virtual currencies with an emphasis on Bitcoin and the current state of the regulatory front.  We will get your thinking caps energized as to how treasury professionals and bankers might approach virtual currencies and some thoughts about what the future might hold for virtual currencies and blockchain.

Bitcoins have gotten much more traction than early detractors and pundits expected and its price has risen dramatically. With that reality, what do companies and banks need to do, if anything, to prepare for their continued existence and surprising acceptance?

No one can afford to ignore what bitcoin and the blockchain promise for the ongoing avalanche of digital innovations to come, including fighting crime and combating cyber-attacks.

Just one of Ray’s compelling and very topical slides from this great presentation
