WHAT: Swell by Ripple

At the Swell by Ripple conference, leaders from across the world in banking and blockchain will connect to discuss the hype versus reality in an ever-evolving industry. The program invites attendees to learn from dignitaries, policy-makers and industry pioneers who will bring blockchain-based use cases to life, explore frameworks for regulation and examine the impact on society at large. As an advocate for technology and innovation, 42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton established programs that bridged the “digital divide” and brought new technology to underserved communities around the world.

Gene Sperling, National Economic Council Director and Advisor under Presidents Clinton and Obama, will moderate a Q&A with President Clinton during the keynote address.

This year’s Swell program will also feature:

  • Financial services companies using blockchain technology in production
  • New market opportunity in remittances, e-commerce and corporate marketplaces
  • Frameworks for regulating digital assets across Europe, Asia and the Middle East
