Ernst and Young are now accepting payments for their services and Japan’s monetary authority now accepting Bitcoin as legal tender, it has reached the establishment. But soon we will see it traded on exchanges and even endorsed by central banks. An update of this profound development should be an important topic for members.
Trevor will cover the above topics, their mechanisms and the future for us in financial services. Trevor will also discuss the ever popular Bitcoin. The blockchain is the platform for all cryptocurrencies but it is used for much more and will have the greatest impact on the industry.The use of Bitcoin in Japan has overtaken China since the announcement in April that it can be used a legal tender and traded like any other currency. This is a big boost to its legitimacy as it moves from the ’bad people’s’ tool to the rest of the world. Trevor Neil will cover all of these aspects.
