Payments Breakfast


Can Blockchain Shift the Payments Fraud Paradigm?

Cybercriminals don’t sleep, so treasury and finance leaders charged with safeguarding the transfer of funds and financial data are faced with the increasingly complex challenge of safeguarding their systems. Blockchain, the underlying technology behind bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, has the ability to combat fraud to enable safe and immutable transactions across industries and geographies. 

Join Alex Tapscott, Co-author of the international best-seller Blockchain Revolution and co-founder of The Blockchain Research Institute, the world's premier blockchain think-tank, as he illuminates the potential of blockchain to transform financial services and empower treasury and finance leaders to combat fraud in this new digital age.
