Silicon Valley Forum announces second blockchain-centric fintech conference on May 30

Silicon Valley Forum, a non-profit that has fostered innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership in Silicon Valley, has announced second fintech conference that will be held on May 30th, 2017, at Swissnex in San Francisco, California.

The conference titled ‘The Fintech Evolution: Banking on the Blockchain’ follows the first fintech conference that was held in 2015.

The conference will see wide range of expert speakers including Matthieu Soulé, senior strategic analyst at L’Atelier BNP Paribas; BlockCypher CEO and cofounder Catheryne Nicholson, and PwC’s fintech lead Dean Nicolacakis, among others.

“Our first fintech conference was an unprecedented success,” Denyse Cardozo, executive director of Silicon Valley Forum, said. “We realized that this isn’t just an emerging tech vertical—it’s an enormous opportunity for companies of all kinds. Blockchain technology is a rare space: since it encompasses a complete process, it truly has a role for everyone.”

The first conference back in 2015, focused on a more general overview of fintech’s disruptive possibilities. While, this upcoming conference, will cover the specifics of the blockchain’s rapid rise over the last several years, and its profound effect on everything from real estate to insurance to capital markets.

The ‘The Fintech Evolution’ conference tickets are available at the event page and on a walk-in basis. Demo tables are also available on the event page, intended for startups working in the fintech space.

“IBM believes that blockchain technology is poised to transform industries including banking and financial services by creating more trust and transparency in transactions. Working with organizations like the Silicon Valley Forum on Fintech Evolution, we are looking forward to hearing new ideas and innovative approaches to blockchain coming from some of the leaders in the space,” Michael Dowling, chief blockchain architect, financial services, IBM, said.
