27 Sept. 2016 - event hosted by BNP Paribas on "Blockchain"

27/09/2016
BNP Paribas Securities Services is pleased to invite you to its ‘Women on Board Event’ dedicated to 'Blockchain', which will be presented by Mr Patrick Wheeler. 
 
(The initial subject of the evening on  the  "Women Matter" research to be presented by Sandrine Devillard, Director in McKinsey’s Paris office, global leader of the McKinsey Women Initiative, has had to be cancelled because of a conflict in the speaker 's diary)
 
A lot is being said on Blockchain: that it has the potential to replace existing payment service providers, that it will transform the way transactions are processed, that with Bitcoins, Blockchain can transform the way are economies are organised and our nation states regulate them.
But what is Blockchain exactly?  What does it mean for our businesses? Wat opportunities does it create?  But also, what risks does it entail?
 
Patrick Wheeler, a Silicon Valley native, and technology consultant, and several other orators will try to respond to these questions and demystify the blockchain concept.
