The buzz: “Show me the money!” “What kind of money?”

Our current financial world is rife with inefficiencies: cross-border payments take days and cost money, sending funds inter-bank is slow, accessing money is cumbersome, trading securities takes time.

Hail, cryptocurrency! Bitcoin and blockchain were created to solve some of these challenges. How does it work? Should your business, your industry, and you personally adopt this new form of currency? And what are the risks?

The experts speak.
