Mack Institute to Partner on Blockchain Opportunity Summit

Blockchain Opportunity SummitEver since Bitcoin was introduced less than a decade ago, there’s been a lot of buzz about the digital currency’s potential to transform how people in all corners of the world conduct financial transactions. But amid the hype, what’s still unclear is how bitcoin and blockchain, its underlying technology, will impact the business world. What opportunities should established firms get ready to seize? What threats should they prepare to face?

To begin answering these questions, the Mack Institute has joined forces with Momentum to host the Blockchain Opportunity Summit in New York City on December 6, 2016.

The Summit will feature speakers from academia (including Mack Institute Executive Director Saikat Chaudhuri), finance, real estate, e-commerce, telecommunications, mobility, and more. Registration is complimentary and reserved for attendees who meet eligibility criteria based on industry, title, and responsibility.
