It has taken hundreds of years to build the centralisation of money but with the development of decentralised ledger technology, this can start to be dismantled in the fraction of the time. This presentation will cover the need for transformation in the banking sector, considers the attitudes of the public in how money is used and managed, compares traditional models of centralisation with decentralised models, and provides a glimpse into the future.
