It is the decentralised, cryptography-based solution that challenges the profit pool of the middle man with a promise to make centralised institutions obsolete. Blockchain technology is set to be the biggest disruptor not only in the financial world, but also a number of online and offline sectors. To date, a record-breaking $1 billion has been invested into blockchain related start-ups, with Aite Group predicting a $400 million investment by banks in the blockchain technology within the next four years. Australia is the world’s eighth-largest exchange and stands to be the global leader by adopting blockchain ahead of the world.

Australia’s only Blockchain Summit presented by Digital Disruption X, is creating a platform for the leading technologists, entrepreneurs, regulators, investors, academics, and financial executives in the emerging Blockchain industry. This event will delve into the current threats, challenges, and opportunities that are associated with this disruptor and the strategies to prepare for and implement Blockchain technology.
