Why distributed ledgers matter

At the heart of bitcoin tech is the blockchain or distributed ledger, a super-smart and lightweight way to track transactions and contracts. Distributed ledgers are about to become a very big deal because they are not only faster and more efficient than ledgers used in mainstream finance today, but they are more secure as well.

The visionaries

A technologically enlightened few have recently discovered the enormous potential of this new ledger and have begun capitalizing on its potential. The NASDAQ has invested more than $100 million in this tech with the aim of implementing distributed ledgers enterprisewide.

UBS Bank also showed foresight when it recently set up a distributed ledger research lab in London with the intention of finding ways to dramatically increase institutional efficiency.

Tech futurists like Apple’s Steve Wozniak, entrepreneur Jeremy Allaire and Virgin’s Richard Branson have begun moving millions into bitcoin tech, signalling the enormous potential that distributed ledgers hold for revolutionising the financial world.

First mover advantage

Distributed ledgers have the potential to shake up the financial world more than both mobile payment solutions and P2P banking combined. If this fact is new to you, you’re not alone. Most people are unaware of the massive impact this new tech is about to have.

Join Keynote2015 to get in on the ground floor and position yourself to capitalise on this massive shift to the financial landscape. The opportunities are enormous for those that understand the potential.

This broad, authoritative declaration is not unexpected, as, to date, the SEC has stated that all digital assets — regardless of whether they function as alt coins or utility tokens — are securities at least initially and, thus, subject to its jurisdiction.
