About the talk
Yes, the blockchain revolution has put more power in the hands of the people. But it’s also revealed the economic divide between those who can easily access financial products, and those who can’t. 'RealFi' creates opportunity for real people, through real identity – creating real impact in the real world.
Join this panel of Input Output leaders, moderated by Joanna Ossinger, editor of Cross Asset Markets at Bloomberg as they discuss how to level the economic playing field and so drive real change for the future, with more opportunities and greater equality and fairness.
