With this year’s conference, we bring together innovators, academics, investors and investment practitioners to address the current blockchain and cryptocurrency landscape, and most importantly, the impact on investment practitioners. Blockchain was introduced to the world in October 2008, a clever combination of mathematics, cryptography, and economics that underpinned Bitcoin. A year ago, cryptocurrency prices, ICOs, and stories of unscrupulous activity gained the attention of members, unsure if this was innovation or hype. In July 2018, stating “This is no passing fad”, the CFA Institute announced the addition of cryptocurrency and blockchain to the CFA curriculum, beginning in June 2019. According to Greenwich Associates, in 2017 financial services companies spent $1.7 billion on blockchain, with 14% of those surveyed already deploying blockchain solutions. Today there are over 1500 cryptocurrencies, ICOs have raised over $9 billion in 2018, and there are close to 300 cryptocurrency funds. Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are top of mind for regulators, legislators, central banks, the IMF, the World Economic Forum and others.
