If 2016 was the year of Blockchain hype, 2017 will be the year where an impact begins to be felt. Behind the scenes, incumbents and disruptors have been determining implementable use cases and are gearing up to put Blockchain technology into practice. As our understanding of the technology’s potential shifts from one phase to the next, it is essential that the financial services industry comes together to learn where its disruptive powers will have the greatest impact.
