Blockchain for the good of all

Blockchain for the good of all

APS Bank is organising a series of talks titled ‘APS talks’. This is the fourth talk of this series titled Blockchain for the good of all, which will be presented by JP Fabri on 28th March 2019 at The Hub - PwC, 78 Mill Street, Qormi.

Blockchain has become a much-hyped up word. With Malta proposing to be the Blockchain island and the global headlines being dominated by the use of blockchains and the movement of prices in cryptocurrencies, a lot has been said but most probably much less has been explained. This talk will set to present the basics of blockchain and why it is described as a transformative and enabling technology. By giving a non-technical overview, the talk will delve into key applications of the blockchain across a number of cases and industries and will look beyond the much talked about areas of cryptocurrencies. It will explore key questions on how public services can become more efficient, how previously unbanked people can be given access to the financial system and how companies can save millions through the roll-out of such technologies.

The talk will try to introduce the blockchain in a non-technical way and how it has the potential of transforming sectors and our daily interactions in society. This will be presented by Mr JP Fabri, MA (Econ); B.Com (Hons) Econ, ICIR
