Traditional financial services institutions are rapidly embracing disruptive technologies to deliver greater access, speed, transparency, and control. The adoption of mobile and digital channels has accelerated the delivery of products and services, and emerging technologies such as the blockchain, artificial intelligence, and machine learning hold promise to increase operational efficiency, reduce risk, and meet the expanding needs of customers. The velocity of innovation using blockchain technology, in particular, continues in 2017 with significant market traction spurred by the emergence of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and shift in sentiment within the respective Bitcoin, Ethereum and other public and permissioned blockchain ecosystems. The Fintech & Blockchain Council brings together innovators across financial services — both start-ups and incumbents — that are working to drive new business models and technology-driven capabilities.
