Dialogue with the Regulators: Navigating Blockchain & Fintech unlocks the critical partnerships between the financial services industry, solution providers, key industry leaders, and regulators leveraging technology to drive innovation and regulatory change.

At the forefront of revolutionary changes in fintech and regtech is blockchain technology. Worldwide spending on blockchain solutions alone is expected to grow from $1.5 billion in 2018 to an estimated $11.7 billion by 2022 with the financial sector accounting for over 60 percent of the market value of blockchain worldwide (Statista). As overall fintech solutions evolve, the regulatory landscape will face enormous challenges in keeping up with technology disruption.
