Jimmy Rojas

Financial Products Lead at Fluidity

" The challenges that have faced DLT (security, speed, interoperability) are now being taken head-on by a much larger group of technologists globally, including corporations with digital specialty groups. Digital groups within enterprises are now large contributors in the development, testing, and standardization of DLT. The financial services industry, in particular, has taken the lead in deploying live pilots in various aspects of the capital markets ecosystem, from bond offerings, securities settlement, and asset management. It’s only a matter of time before we see higher-value assets tied to the blockchain in terms of being digitally  securitized, transferred, and settled. "


Bryant Nielson

Founder and CEO of The Blockchain Academy

" DLT and blockchain will continue its slow march toward adoption in the next 12-24 months.  It will be constrained by the ongoing scarcity of human capital as well as institutional bureaucratic pushback.  One of the most interesting uses of this technology will come in the Fashion industry. "
