IIT Chicago-Kent/Stuart, 565 West Adams Street, Chicago, IL

Join FinTank and Digital Asset for a discussion about the best thing to come out of blockchain since bitcoin: smart contracts. Blockchain and DLT have been touted as the next big thing, but what has impeded adoption so far, and where does the true potential for transformation lie? Digital Asset believes that smart contracts will unleash web-paced innovation for distributed applications and transform the way we do business.

Come learn more about Digital Asset and the smart contract language they originally developed, DAML, with Talia Klein (Product Manager) and Andrew Pisano (Business Development Director). They will also highlight some of the projects Digital Asset is currently working on, including their engagements with the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX), Change Healthcare and Broadridge, which are transforming financial services, healthcare, supply chain and other industries across the globe.
