“Traditional financial products and instruments need to be offered through the medium of bitcoin to advance the transition of bitcoin from early adopter novelty to a fully integrated part of the world financial ecosystem.”
Says Smith, a fintech specialist with a 20 year history designing and managing global risk strategies for some of the world’s most prominent commodity trading companies.
“First Global Credit is one of the earliest, though certainly not the only company that has entered the digital currency market to develop services needed to fill these gaps in the bitcoin ecosystem.
Instead of having interest wane following a year of bitcoin trading within a range, professional interest in the digital currency still continues to be strong with the likes of Citigroup, Santander and Barclays looking seriously at the opportunities presented by bitcoin and the blockchain. In addition to his talk on The Bitcoin Capital Market, Mr. Smith will also take part in a panel discussion later that day on Investment Opportunities in Bitcoin alongside Eddy Travia of Coinsilium and Salvador Casquero Director of FX Trading of Banco Sabedell, the fifth largest banking group in Spain. The Bitcoin Capital Market talk being given at 10:15AM on Wednesday the 7th of October followed by the Investment panel at 11:30.
