The Finance and Business Forum “Blockchain in Financial Services 2021” is aimed at decision-makers in the banking and insurance industry, regulatory authorities and start-ups. In addition, visionary lateral thinkers and all interested actors from science and politics are invited to network and exchange their experiences with experts.

Start-ups, established companies, states and central banks are testing and developing new applications with the blockchain - especially outside of currencies. At the same time, companies and consumers have become more sensitive to not being dependent on a central authority due to increasing digitalization. Distributed systems based on the blockchain can be an answer to this.
