The Mankoff Company Holds Blockchain Event In Chicago On February 24

The Mankoff Company, a marketing consultancy, has announced its next Blockchain event – ‘Disruptive Innovation: Blockchain’ – to be held in Chicago on 24 February, 2016. The event follows the successful discussions on Blockchain and its impact on the FinTech community in New York and London, the company said in a press release.

“After highly successful discussions in London and NYC, The Mankoff Company brings you an After the Bell event highlighting a topic of major interest in the Fintech community and beyond,” The Mankoff Company said in an online post.

The event will bring together leading experts, investors, banks and others. It is creating a panel discussion, part of the After the Bell series produced by the company over the past 7 years, that will serve as a platform for sharing views and insights as well as provide an opportunity to network and engage with experts who are working with Blockchain and discovering new opportunities and applications.

“It’s been estimated that the Financial Industry invested over $1bn in Blockchain Technology by the end of 2015” said Stacey Mankoff, Managing Principal of The Mankoff Company, “ and it certainly seems that  investment will continue at this pace well into 2016.”

The panel discussion will address some major issues relating to blockchain technology including:

  • What can Blockchain actually do – understanding the underlying technology 
  • Private vs. Public Blockchains
  • How Blockchain allows for better traceability and auditing
  • Creating a scaleable Blockchain
  • Regulatory and compliance issues
  • How start-ups in this space are creating the technology
  • How the financial institutions are selecting the best ones for investment, maximizing their presence in the space.

The panel currently includes John Karantonis, Co-Founder & CEO, Geopay.me, Inc.; Robert A. Musiala, Jr., Esq., CFCS, Manager, PriceWaterhouseCoopers; Ryan Pierce, Director & Technology Architect, CME Group; Jennifer Rodrigues, Blockchain Innovation Lead, TD Bank; and Mark Smith, CEO & Founder, Symbiont.

“Every single day there is something about blockchain in the financial news but what are real-world applications and what do you really need to know?  Our event with its high level speakers and FinTech audience provides a targeted discussion followed by networking amongst your industry colleagues” said Ms. Mankoff.

The Mankoff Company has over 20 years of experience in marketing, sales and public relations within the financial community and focuses on all aspects of the financial industry with an expertise in trading technology. It is also a resource for media outlets targeting the FinTech community.
