A Rising Tide of Anticipation Builds for Swell

Swell by Rippe

The team at Ripple couldn’t be more excited for Swell — a high-impact blockchain program that brings leaders in banking and blockchain technology together in a three-day confab.

On the first day of the program, Dr. Ben Bernanke, Former Chairman of the Fed (2006 – 2014), will be our first keynote speaker and will offer his thoughts on the state of blockchain.

Additionally, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Inventor of the World Wide Web, will deliver a keynote speech about what’s next for the web on day two.

On day three, Don Tapscott, renowned co-author of the “Blockchain Revolution,” will uncover a set of solutions that will transform the financial industry for the better in his keynote speech.

Swell Won’t Shy Away from Hard Topics

Swell will also have a few sessions — one in particular called the “Future of Blockchain” where Ripple, Ethereum, Chain and Hyperledger will take the stage — to not only discuss the future of this technology but also potentially debate divergent ideologies on digital assets.

The other sessions will also focus on hot-button topics such as the role digital assets play in global payments, why some banks lag behind others regarding innovation, and what other financial institutions have learned from using enterprise-level blockchain solutions.
