On Friday 30 September 2016, Reply hosts an event, dedicated to Blockchain Applications in a clear framework of business innovation. The event takes place at Sefton Hotel, Isle of Man from 8.00 am to 11.30 am.
Investments in the Fintech sector are increasingly focused on ideas based on Blockchain. Forty-five global banks have joined the R3 initiative designed to define a de facto standard concerning the use of Blockchain within an inter-banking context. At least five of the UK’s biggest fund houses are looking into several applications for the technology, including trading illiquid securities in order to speed up the movement of ownership of illiquid securities from one asset manager to another and substantially reduce costs.
However, interest in Blockchain is now exploding across industries beyond financial services, and in this event Reply focuses on Gaming, Telcos and Retail, where the opportunities for blockchain applications are significant, as well as in Financial Services. The central theme is that Blockchain technology can create Trust without needing to rely on a central third party, and once this theme is applied it becomes clear that a range of verticals can be disrupted. In this session, Reply explains how this can happen with both the principles and live demonstrations of four of our own in-house blockchain applications, running on a range of blockchains including bitcoin, ethereum and multichain.
Reply has long been particularly active on this topic. Reply has created a group which is focused on the observation and study of the impact of Blockchain on Financial Institutions and other industries, has created a significant team of analysts and consultants specialised on this subject, has experienced the related software technologies and has established a highly interactive dialogue with some important players. Today Reply offers
eight working Blockchain accelerators able to face challenging business scenarios in different industry sectors, particularly in areas relating to Payments, Insurance policy, Internet of Things, Property, Ticketing and Coupons, Voting and Software Defined Network security.
