Blockchain.News will organize a public seminar, "Blockchain Changing the Course of Human History" as a sub-event of the Hong Kong Fintech Week.
How does blockchain change the course of human history? We examine the history of money issuance standard and the role of blockchain in empowering monetary and financial freedom, changing our social credit structure and much more. In collaboration with HKUST, we also take a deep dive on the impact of Bitcoin and blockchain in the recent macroeconomic turmoil and the real-life use cases in the financial markets.
Hong Kong Fintech Week is presented by InvestHK which is the government department of the foreign direct investment in Hong Kong. Being Asia's most anticipated international financial technology event of the year, this event gathers over 10,000 executives, entrepreneurs, investors and regulators from Asia Pacific and worldwide.
