Welcome to an exciting new digital event
Digitisation of international trade and international trade finance involves a large number of parties and variables that communicate information and exchange “values”. A possible solution is represented by blockchain, which uses consensus among participants to allow each transaction to be shaped, in spite of the absence of a trusted central authority.
This virtual conference will illustrate how blockchain technology will be leading the current digital transformation, showing the benefits blockchain will bring to the world of International trade finance, solving real basic problems, removing friction and pain points.
