In as little as ten years, the very concept of money will have been forever changed. And the fact is, its happening now in real time.

Yet making sense of the reality is a challenge. Headlines scream of an ongoing rise but heightened volatility with the grandfather of all crypto-currencies, Bitcoin. At the same time, a new vocabulary has emerged that involve radical new concepts, the decentralization of authority, and rapid hyperinnovation: blockchain, Ethereum, ASIC and currency miners, hard forks and smart contracts!

What does it mean when Jamie Dymon, the head of  JPMorgan Chase calls Bitcoin a fraud and the people who buy it "stupid," and yet at the same time, the head of the IMF says that Bitcoin could give existing currencies and monetary policy a run for their money? When a cryptocurrency goes from a valuation of a few hundred dollars to over $10,000 in a matter of months? When 2018 will be defined by an acceleration of the acceptance of distributed ledger concepts at the same time that a horde of fraud artists invade this fascinating new world. 

And most important of all, what does it mean to your business and your business model? Is it a fraud, or is it a bubble? What's real, and what's not? Are we in the midst of the latest Tulip and dot.com phrase, or is there substantial change underway?

In this keynote, Futurist and technology expert Jim Carroll peels away the layers of the world of cryptocurrency, outlining the challenges and opportunities that come with the end of the concept of money as we know it. These are truly transformative times - for the realty of blockchain goes far beyond the current hype surrounding Bitcoin. The concept of distributed ledgers will change entire industries, challenge the very nature of the legal concept of offer and acceptance, and unleash a torrent of hyper innovation around business models.

Jims' clients include NASA, Disney, Johnson and Johnson, Mercedes Benz and many more. He has shared his insight on the future around the world, with events in Tokyo, London, Budapest, Dubai, Sydney, Brussels, Munich, and across North America.

At the start of the new millennium, the excitement around a ‘global economy’ was palpable with sugar plums in the form of trading partners dancing around in world leaders’ heads. With the implosion of Greece, concerns about Italy, Spain and Portugal still hovering over the world economy’s head, can the U.S. stand a chance of recovering? The unequivocal answer from Liz Claman is YES and here’s how and why it’ll happen. Her access to the world’s biggest business leaders from Warren Buffett to Bill Gates to Google’s Eric Schmidt to Intel’s Paul Otellini to Alcoa’s Klaus Kleinfeld reveal the real and more optimistic answers.
