New challenges in the Banking system: The role of Distributed Ledger Technology

New challenges in the Banking system: The role of Distributed Ledger Technology

International Virtual Conference, 16-18 December 2020 (TBC)
The traditional banking system is under pressure of the growing pace of diffusion of innovative downstream IT solutions. It is crucial to understand how Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) can represent an opportunity for the banking system, that is called to respond to the newest needs of their customers, and the competitive pressure coming from traditional and newcomers.

The International Virtual Conference will provide a platform for academics and practitioners from different countries to analyze recent trends, impacts and upcoming challenges in the application of DLT in the banking system. The International Virtual Conference, in fact, offers a comprehensive view of new panorama in which banks must operate, and emphasizes how DLT can be used as a strategy to respond to the new needs of users and the pressures coming from competitors.
