The Future of Money at Sibos

12 Sep

Here’s a quick introduction of what I will be speaking about on the Future of Money panel (with a lot of great minds) at Sibos in Toronto. And yes, I do think there is a big role for banks in the future. Hope you can join us, if you’re interested in the topic.

Thursday 22 September 09:00 – 10:30 Conference room 3
New payment schemes are trying to enable peer-to-peer money transfers, dis-intermediating the banks. Money is no longer seen as the sole representation of value. New alternative currencies are being created. Facebook credits are now used by more than 250 million people. New payments schemes are being proposed at the infrastructure level of the internet. Currency is open-sourced. How can we create new systems of wealth generation and abundance? What does the future hold for banks and other financial institutions in the wake of massive peer-to-peer exchange? How do we (re)define the role of banks in this fast moving eco-system of new value providers?
