On Tuesday 24 May 2016,
Reply hosts an Executive Meeting, dedicated to
Blockchain – Bitcoin in a clear framework of business innovation. The event takes place at Firmdale Covent Garden Hotel, London from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm.
Investments in the Fintech sector are increasingly focused on
ideas based on Blockchain. Forty-two global banks have joined the R3 initiative designed to define a de facto standard concerning the use of
Blockchain within an inter-banking context. 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 reduce substantially costs.
Indeed, interest in Blockchain is exploding across industries beyond financial services. Verizon and Samsung ventures invested in Filament, a startup enabling
deployment of scalable and interoperable networks. Other IoT applications are gathering pace, such as Slock.IT, building on Ethereum to make
smart contracts act on physical objects; and IBM and Microsoft have also released
cloud-based Blockchain as a Service. Further Blockchain trials are reportedly emerging in the retail industry: specifically, we highlight the efforts of BlockVerify in dealing with
counterfeiting of products such as drugs, luxury goods and electronics. As regards to the UK market, Electron showed potential applications for distributed ledgers in the retail energy sector.
