untilhttp://www.theblockchainconference.com Participating in The Block Chain Conference The Block Chain Conference is the first business and block chain-focused event to bring together the IT establishment - enterprise users and the vendors that service them - and innovative startups creating the block chain future. The goal: to accelerate the development, deployment and leverage of block chain-based approaches by global business. In recent months, the buzz related to block chain and distributed ledger technology has reached a frenzied level. There's no doubt that all the leading enterprises from Wall Street to Main Street are interested in the potential for what has been cited as game changing technology. But what is the reality of adoption, what are the opportunities across different verticals and what are the business and technology challenges to making block chain a mainstream approach? Will block chains be embraced by enterprise IT users and vendors, just as middleware, databases, open source, cloud, mobile and web-centric approaches have? Indeed, what makes block chains and smart contracts better than established technologies? The enterprise IT world is quite rightly beginning to ask these questions and the answers to date have in large part been vague and self serving. It's time to deliver some clarity and honesty to the block chain debate - and that will happen at The Block Chain Conference. ------ 4pm - Panel: How Block Chain Technology is Disrupting Global Payments This panel will explore how block chain technology is disrupting established players in the corporate and personal payments space.

OK. This will be an interesting event on January 20th through 23rd as Ripple will Collide with the major banking cartels and the established Banking elites. I love the statement made on this article posted by Ripple "Participants will discuss the rapid changes the world economy faces today, defining the task before us as “Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution.” Chris Larsen, Ripple's CEO will be there as one of the speakers. Keep in mind that just 4 hours and 25 minutes away in Geneva is where the Hadron Collider rests. Here they conduct experiments that would blow your mind. Zillions of protons collide to create things that our minds are sometimes not capable of understanding. This Behemoth of a technological break through is symbolic of Ripple's technological brilliance in bringing to markets what was thought of as impossible but now a startling reality. The Ripple protocol will collide with the establishment and the weaker will have to give praise where praise is due. https://ripple.com/insights/looking-forward-to-davos-2016/
