Bill Clinton To Headline Swell Blockchain Conference

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton will headline an international conference, where policy, payments and technology experts will share ideas based on blockchain technology in financial services.

He will deliver a keynote address and participate in a question-and-answer session at the two-day conference to be held in San Francisco in October.

Gene Sperling, National Economic Council Director and Advisor under Presidents Clinton and Obama, will moderate the Q&A.

The Swell 2018 Conference is organized by Cryptocurrency payments startup Ripple.

The main focus of discussions will be on three subjects: Financial services companies using blockchain technology in production; new market opportunity in remittances, e-commerce and corporate marketplaces; and frameworks for regulating digital assets across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Representatives of the world’s central banks will share their explorations with blockchain – both what they’ve done so far and what they have planned for the future.

Global leaders in blockchain and cryptocurrency payments will tell the conference how they built a career on taking giant leaps forward to implement innovative technologies in their organizations. They share an inside view into what they are thinking about next, the organizers said.
