Telethon Speech & Hearing proudly presents:
Experts reveal the basics and discuss the impact on traditional financial systems
Telethon Speech & Hearing warmly invites you to a panel presentation and discussion by four industry leaders in Financial Technologies and Cryptocurrencies.
There’s a huge amount of interest in crypto currencies and the block chain but most of us struggle to understand what they are and how we ascribe value to them.
Set in the magnificent surrounds of the Royal Perth Golf Club, and complemented by a gourmet lunch and premium beverages, our speakers will share their extensive knowledge and experience on the evolving influence of cryptocurrencies on our financial landscape, and discuss how they will impact traditional forms of business across all industries.
If you operate in the corporate space, you’ve probably heard about the Block Chain and Bitcoin, but did you know that there’s in excess of 1100 crypto currencies and in excess of $US1.28B of funds have been raised through ICO’s (Initial Coin Offerings) in the first half of 2017 alone?
These technologies are already proving to be a huge disruptor across a multitude of sectors. They represent a new generation of threats and opportunities to traditional business systems.
This informative presentation will discuss these developments in the Fintech industry in Australia, the trading of cryptocurrencies and their continuing rise and influence, and what venture capitalists believe will follow the success of technologies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.
With a well-established track record of 17 years in delivering highly successful fundraising events in Western Australia, Telethon Speech and Hearing have brought together an incredible line up of industry leaders to present on this topic.
