From Blockchain to Open-Source Finance (in English)

When the Bitcoin Whitepaper was released at the high-point of the 2008 financial crisis, few would have predicted the major implications it would have, not just for a small group of internet enthusiasts but for Global Finance. Yet, 10 years after the mining of the first Bitcoin, ambitious projects are building the rails on which a decentralized financial system will operate. A Blockchain-based financial system built on the principles of 1) permissionless access, 2) interoperability and 3) open-source could change the way how the financial system operates forever. This talk will explore the opportunities and challenges which lie ahead.
