RBI Blockchain Day 2019
With more than 200 participants attending, the second Blockchain Day took place in the beautiful Palais Berg in Vienna on November 21st. In this year’s event we went above and beyond last year’s agenda to explore the most recent developments within blockchain technology over the past year and its most promising applications for the banking of the future. Hosting a range of partners as well as industry and thought leaders allowed the participants to go beyond gathering theoretical input and instead fully dive into state-of-the-art use cases which are of increasing relevance to RBI and ultimately its customers.
Accordingly, the Blockchain Day’s role to facilitate exchange of information by providing different communication formats included inspiring keynotes, expert panel discussions, startup pitches and networking opportunities. Throughout the day, RBI representatives from all network banks as well as colleagues from the head office were able to engage closely with our expert guests in order to exchange opinions on the role of blockchain in banking, gather valuable best-practice insights and discuss political as well as regulatory challenges.
