NACD Board Leadership Conference NACD Chapter System

Maybe you want to ignore Bitcoin...but you'd better remember Blockchain!

January 11, 2018
Darien, CT



Come hear KPMG’s experts explain why the technology that builds Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies can have game-changing effects on literally every industry.  You may be ignoring all of the headlines around Bitcoin believing it is a passing fad like tulip mania, alt-loans and portfolio insurance but ignoring blockchain technology will be to your detriment.  Wall Street invested $1 billion in blockchain, not Bitcoin, in last year alone.  Wal Mart has commissioned IBM to develop blockchain to track produce from farm to shelf to identify farm lots and reduce product recalls.  If there was one event that you need to attend in 2018, this is it!
